Your Host

David Eichorn David Eichorn
Suburban Farmer and Beekeeper

Raised on a small farm with a fruit-tree orchard, veggie garden, and farm animals, David Eichorn grew up baking bread and canning fruits in the summertime alongside his mother, an interest that would stay with him for life. Today, his suburban home functions as a working farm, and his expertise has earned him a feature as the lead beekeeper in the book Backyard Beekeepers of the Bay Area. For more than 30 years, David has taught an extensive array of subjects, harnessing the ability to teach students everything from farming to violin to criminal law.
