The honest to goodness farm co.
Carolyn spent 10 years as a Commercial Pilot, including 4 years in Northern Canada as a bush pilot, before partnering with an Organic Farm in South Surrey and starting a seasonal CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Through farming she discovered pollinators and fell in love with honeybees. She took her first beekeeping course in 2015 and has since graduated from the KPU Commercial Beekeeping Program, worked under 3 commercial beekeepers, had a baby, and completed her Beemasters at UBC. Carolyn is now the Chief Beekeeper for KPUs 400 colony operation and the owner of The Honest to Goodness Farm Company, a 50 colony operation that uses revenue from a host-a-hive program to support native pollinator habitat. Through her business she also offers mentorship to beekeepers and hosts a podcast, The Honest Bee, aimed at educating beekeepers in Canada. Carolyn is one of the 3 partners who own and operate Corbicula. She focuses on beekeeping, pollen processing and managing our farmer partnerships.
