FREE: First Saturdays: Tour, Talk, & Taste
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!
What You Will Do
Enjoy tasting all the varieties of honey! Tour a working Apiary and see inside a living hive, watch the colony at work! Get answers to questions about beekeeping! Discuss options for using beekeeping for AG exemptions on 5-20 acres!
Tour the apiary, taste the honey, and ask the experts!
This is a working apiary with live honey bees on site. Although a stinging episode would be extremely rare, it is possible to be stung by a honey bee when visiting an apiary. Please do not attend if you believe you have severe bee allergies or have ever experienced anaphylactic shock after a bee sting.
This is a RAIN or SHINE event! :)
