ONCE YOU HAVE THE LOVE OF BEES
IN YOUR BLOOD… THERE’S NO GOING BACK!
I moved back to California 15 years ago from Chicago to work on the family bee farm. I then worked side by side with my grandfather (the first generation Beekeeper, Howard Bradshaw, and Uncle, David Bradshaw (second generation). As a child I would visit the family farm yearly and was always so fascinated with the whole process of the honey bees life.
Growing up I just never could find the work niche that was right for me. Went to auto mechanics school, learned construction trades and even went back to school to study forestry and natural resources. I then knew bees were in my blood and there was no getting away from it.
I worked closely with the family for a number of years until relations grew and new customers gave me the opportunity to start my own company. That’s when Sierra Honey Farm began. My whole focus was to run a manageable # of hives and focus on an exceptional product that’s straight from the hive to the jar.
Being a small company I oversee all operations to make sure nothing but the best is sold. I switched my business plan from a large commercial outfit to focusing on honest, real, raw, small crop honey from secluded private ranches along the California Central Coast.
Each year when the nectar starts flowing, I use special honey boxes that are only used for honey to collect the pure gold from the central coast hills. My process is slower than other operations to ensure the quality of the honey is not jeopardized. No heat, steam, or separators are used in the extraction process.
