About Carmel Berry Company

Who We Are

Carmel Berry Company was created in 2015 by Katie and Ben Reneker, both enthusiasts of gourmet food, sustainable agriculture, and nutrition.  Located in Carmel Valley, California, we handcraft our small batch syrups and cordials using the highest quality locally sourced ingredients in order to meet our exacting standards of local, sustainable, and delicious.  Read the press articles for more on the Renekers and Carmel Berry Company’s beginnings.
