Queen of the Sun Documentary

The folks at Bee Bold Mendocino wanted to share an awesome documentary with all of you! We’re hoping to host a showing in the next few months, in Fort Bragg! Stay tuned for more information.

For now, check out this trailer for the Queen of the Sun:

QUEEN OF THE SUN: What Are the Bees Telling Us? is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from award-winning filmmaker Taggart Siegel, director of REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN . Taking us on a journey through the catastrophic disappearance of bees and the mysterious world of the beehive, this engaging and ultimately uplifting film weaves an unusual and dramatic story of the heartfelt struggles of beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the world including Michael Pollan, Gunther Hauk and Vandana Shiva. Together they reveal both the problems and the solutions in renewing a culture in balance with nature.

Summer Interns Create The Bee Bold Mendocino Web Page!

Thanksgiving Coffee Company has been very fortunate this summer with the addition of four wonderful student interns from the Mendocino High School.


From the start to finish, this group has been a joy to work with and they were able to accomplish so much during the summer. We are extremely grateful for all of their help and look forward to seeing what they will come up with next in their life.

The interns spent the summer learning; Adobe Illustrator, WordPress, all about bees, (there’s more than one female), honey, pollination, Photoshop, lamination, coffee, cupping, methods of prep, differences between roasts, and most important, collaboration!
