Bayer recently announced the recipients of the fifth annual Bayer Bee Care Community Leadership Award for dedication to pollinator protection and educating their communities about bee health. Bayer expanded the scope of its awards program this year to show support for the future of the beekeeping industry with a new young beekeeper award, which was presented this year to 14-year-old Jake Reisdorf of Carmel, CA.
Jake, owner of the Carmel Honey Company, is the first-ever beekeeper under 18 years of age to receive this award, which includes a $1,000 prize to support his school and community honey bee-focused initiatives.
