Meet the Beekeepers
Beekeeper / Founder / CEO
Dylan Martin founded Mill Brook Honey, LLC in 2014 when he was 14 years old. He was asked to develop a business as part of a high school class through the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) program. He had also become aware of the vanishing honey bees and wanted to do something to help. He started by asking his father to buy him a hive and learned beekeeping by speaking with local beekeepers, reading, and doing research online.
Dylan has won several awards for his business savvy and his efforts to save honeybees. He won the NFTE competitions at the School and Regional levels and finished in the top 10 at the National NFTE Competition. Dylan was selected as an NFTE Global Entrepreneur of the Year and was honored by Ernst & Young as the Young Entrepreneur of the Year for the New York Region.
Dylan is a member of the CT Beekeepers Association and has nearly 20 hives located in Stamford, New Canaan, and Ridgefield, CT. He plans to add several hives every year. He would eventually like to manage 100 hives.
Dylan has completed the Apprentice and Journeyman Beekeeping courses through the University of Montana and plans to complete the Master Beekeeper course to become a Certified Master Beekeeper in the summer of 2019. He is currently a freshman at Virginia Tech pursuing a degree in Business Management.
