Carmel, CA, September 19, 2017 — If you're looking for the perfect gift this holiday season you can't get much sweeter than a gift that is produced locally, helps the environment, and contributes to research and education for the betterment of the world.
Holiday gift boxes featuring honey and custom Carmel Honey Company logo items are now available from the company, which was founded by 14-year-old Carmel student Jake Reisdorf, who was 11 at the time. The gift boxes are available online or at the company's store in Carmel.
The three gift packages available so far include:
* $100 box. This box features a custom Carmel Honey Company logo apron, custom mug with attached spoon, custom honeybee/honeycomb design socks, a 12-oz. jar of Wildflower Honey, an Orange Blossom Honey Stix pack, and a honey dipper, all in a white box with bow.
* $50 box. Features Earl Grey Supreme Tea in a silver tin, 8-oz. jar of Sage Honey, custom mug with attached spoon, and honey dipper in black box with bow.
* $30 box. Features a four-pack of Carmel Honey Company honey, Sage Honey, Wildflower Honey, Orange Blossom Honey and Meadowfoam Honey, gift wrapped in black box with bow.
The four types of honey currently produced comes from Jake's 120 beehives, and is all-natural, pure, raw, premium honey that comes straight from the hives.
And Reisdorf, as part of his “Jake Gives Back” program, donates some of his proceeds from the sale of his honey to organizations that are expanding research and education efforts by addressing the production, nutritional value, health benefits, economics, and/or quality standards of honey bees and honey.
“I'm just an average 13-year-old who likes honeybees,” Reisdorf told California Bountiful magazine. “With beekeeping, you are helping the environment and it is really fun and interesting. I'm all about the education and practicing beekeeping and doing honey. The message that I want everyone to know is: If the bees go, we go, so help save the bees.”
So when you purchase these gift boxes from the Carmel Honey Company, (or place a honey bee pollination hive in your backyard), you have contributed to the research and education of the public on the importance of pollination and the benefits of the honey bee.

About Jake and Carmel Honey Company:
Jake Reisdorf is the chief beekeeper and owner, with his family, of Carmel Honey Company. Jake started the business as part of a school project when his teacher assigned professions to each student and directed them to research the profession and build a presentation on it.
While researching his assigned profession of website designer, Jake, 11 years old at the time, decided to take it one step further and actually create a real website. At that time, Jake had taken one beekeeping class with his Dad and thought it would be cool to design a website about honey bees.
Not only did Jake get an “A” on the project, it inspired him and spurred him to start Carmel Honey Company. That was three years ago.
His passion for honey bees grew as he learned about Colony Collapse Disorder and real honey. Expanding his research and education drove Jake to learn more about honey and bees and ultimately decide it was critical to give back.
The “Jake Gives Back” program includes sharing honey bee knowledge with kids and adults of all ages. Whether he is in a classroom speaking to first-grade students, or at a corporate event talking with business owners and seasoned professionals, his passion and appreciation of how honey bees impact our world is infectious. He also “gives back” by making a financial donation to honey bee research and education organizations.
Jake currently attends ninth grade at Carmel High School and keeps his knowledge of apiology (the scientific study of bees) current by continuing to manage his own honey bee hives and attending industry conferences throughout the country.
