Sola Bee Brand Manager
Claire met Trevor when she was a high school English teacher. She loved helping with the family beekeeping business, and grew excited about the possibilities with Sola Bee Farms. She began selling honey during her summers off, but quickly became so busy she decided to focus on Sola Bee Farms full time. She now blends her love of teaching and honeybees by participating in educational events that promote learning about bees and honey production.
Claire handles all the wholesale honey sales, retail account management, and promotes Sola Bee Farms in local markets and fairs. She loves learning about different honey varietals and is constantly working on new projects and way to educate the public about the importance of pollination and buying local honey.
Trevor Tauzer grew up beekeeping with his father. Throughout his life, he worked with his father keeping bees and on their family farm and pollinating crops throughout Yolo and surrounding counties. In 2002, he left his family farm to attend the University of California, Santa Cruz. After earning a college degree, Trevor’s love for the bees and honey brought him back to his family farm. He returned home with a new vision for the honey side of his family beekeeping and created Sola Bee Farms in 2011.
Trevor loves visiting and taking care of his beehives. He’s been known to spend up to 18 hours a day checking their health and honey production progress. He’s always looking for new foraging areas to keep our bees healthy and happy. Send him an email if you have land that you think would help our hives flourish! Trevor@solabeefarms.com
