Det skal I lave

Come join us for a tailored beekeeping experience in theTexas Hill Country. Interested in starting your own apiary? We can help you get started and show you how to install a package of bees. Are you just curious about bees and want to learn more about these marvelous little creatures? Join us for our What's the Buzz Class which covers a little bit of everything from bee biology to beekeeping practices. Are you a little scared of bees but want to check it out anyway? We can do that too.

What we'll do?
We'll start our experience in our 1930's cottage and woodshop where we will cover the safety protocols and suit up. We'll then take you to the apiary where we will talk about beekeeping techniques, tools, and light the smoker. Then we will open up the hives and explore the intricacies of everything inside including finding the precious queen. We will wrap up the experience by walking through our 7-acre property to gaze at some feral hives and munch on some delicious honey straight from the hive.

Message us directly for weekday class availability.

We learned so much about bees in general and the feasibility of starting our own colony. Frank answered all our questions and provided a lot of extra information that was super interesting. We got to be hands on, too! Really cool.

Natalie and Frank gave us such an awesome experience. This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Austin and would recommend it to anyone. We learned a ton and was super fun!

Very informative session. Getting to learn and see the bees in a safe setting but not too safe (ex. behind a screen) some things can't be experienced through a tv or phone screen.. Conversating and sharing experiences is what life should be like. It is a little out of the way from the city but that's what it is all about. The scenery made for an enjoyable drive out to the meet up spot. If you have any interest in bee keeping or learning about bees. The host is a biologist and can share a wealth of knowledge. Maybe even give bee keeping a try yourself. Finished off the experience just chatting about travels and enjoying a light snack of several varieties of honey, some fruit, and snacks. made for a very pleasant start of the day

This was an amazing experience! Frank was super knowledgeable about all things bees and the surrounding land. We were kept safe with the appropriate equipment. The best part was tasting the natural honey from one of his hives. I would do this experience again.
