The 16-year-old from Castroville has started a new journey with his new local business. Anderson's idea came after his experience with other beekeepers. The teen would take as many calls as possible when it came to bee removal jobs. Though Anderson knew this would take some time, he kept his idea going. Now, Anderson is the proud business owner of BeeSpace.

Anderson is everything you would expect from a local business. Anderson maintains his bee farm, creates his products, offers beehive relocation services, and even shows you how to care for bees through classes.
Anderson knows the importance of honey bees in our ecosystems. That's why he flew out to California to help with beehive relocation efforts while the state of California endured one of its most critical wildfire crises. Anderson is here to care and care the right way.
Anderson is part of the local businesses in San Antonio that have been hit by COVID-19, reporting that his sales have dropped 50% during this time, if not more.
