Texas Honey Bee Farm brings you the highest quality in bees, equipment, honey, classes, consulting, and more to the Austin/Central Texas market. Our SW Austin Store is open 4 days a week and staffed with experienced beekeepers to help you select the right beekeeping products for your needs.
For beekeepers, we offer one-stop shopping that will jump-start your beekeeping adventure. For those that are ‘bee-curious’ and just want to visit a working bee farm, we have observation hives to see the bees at work up-close, honey tasting, candles, t-shirts, bee bling, gifts and much more. This is truly the place for the whole family to enjoy a honey bee experience!
We will offer NUC pick ups April-July of 2021. We offers 4 or 5-Frame Deep Langstroth Nucs and 17″ Top Bar Nucs-5-bars (limited availability). The queens will be mated here from my personal local bee stock, these are not ‘commercial Italians’ with zero resistance to disease. The queens will be raised in their/your nuc and will not be released to you until we are sure the queens are mated, accepted, and laying with an adequate pattern. So when you come to get your nuc, it will already be a thriving family ready to be placed in their forever home. This gives you the best chance of success because the queens won’t want to leave their new babies. (Don’t buy nucs that still have the queen trapped in her little cage or if she was just released into a nuc!) When you come to pick up your nucs, if you want, I will take the time to show you your bees and your queen and her eggs she is laying so you know that you have a solid colony BEFORE you leave my property. 🙂 I want you to be successful with my Ba-bees! 🙂
To reserve your NUCS for spring 2021 please order by selecting the ‘SHOP’ link on our website and paying now. Pick up is for Spring/Summer 2021. Exact pick up days and times will be offered to you via EMAIL or TEXT from the store, for now just choose the month, I think April Nucs are sold out for now. But either way, we will make nucs as fast as we can when the weather is right and there are plenty of mated queens available. We let you pick up your bees in the order they are reserved, so first come, first served. (order early) ALL local beekeepers sell out of ALL of their nucs every year, so you should start ordering in the fall for the next year to get them at the earliest opportunities.
If we are sold out online, please call the store to be added to a waiting list. Nucs are for PICK UP ONLY IN AUSTIN as production allows late April-July. Please watch our Facebook page and this site for farm updates this spring.
