Every first Saturday, Texas Honey Bee Farm will open up the gate early to host the honey bee curious, beekeeper rookies, and all honey lovers.

Starting at 11 am, 11:45 am, and 12:15 pm a Bee Expert will lead you through our apiary on a hive walk and teach you some of the basic practices and ideas of beekeeping. See bees up close in live hives and watch how foragers return to colonies - knowing exactly which box is their home. Then have your questions ready for our beekeeper. Our Bee Experts have worked through thousands of colonies and can help you with your beekeeping questions. If you don't have a hive, you will have plenty to talk about. Bees are inspiring. Afterward, you will head to our beekeeping store and gift shop for a brief tour of beekeeping supplies. We saved the best for last - a honey tasting! Our shop offers local, exotic, whipped, infused, and creamed honeys. We are looking forward to sharing nature's sweetest gifts with you!
