Konrad Bouffard of Round Rock Honey, profiled by Tribeza Magazine, collects 100% natural local-wildflower honey and trains budding beekeepers to tame the striped buzzers. During the beekeeping class, a master beekeeper educates nectar neophytes on the honey-harvesting basics, offering an introduction to bees and information on hive handling, the prevailing quandary among cartoon bears. Students keen on cultivating their own liquid gold will learn how to keep bees through changing seasons and safeguard their swarms from disease and parasites. Finally, participants get to don full beekeeper's garb (suits are provided) and gain hands-on experience at Round Rock's on-site apiary, conducting buzzing swarms of worker bees, even if the queen bee is on a diplomatic mission to discuss trade relations with tyrannical butterflies. Upon leaving, students drench lips with a 100% organic lip balm fashioned in flavors of spearmint, pomegranate, or honey and packaged in 100% recyclable and biodegradable materials. Beekeeping pupils can tote cameras and should protect appendages by wearing blue jeans, long-sleeve shirts, and boots or other ankle-covering shoes. Though not included with this Groupon, Round Rock's sweet substances, named Best Honey in 2008 by the Dallas Observer, will be available for purchase following hive handling.

Round Rock Honey

Named Best Honey in 2008 by the Dallas Observer, Round Rock Honey's 100% natural local wildflower honey is harvested from more than 90 sites by owners Konrad and Elizabeth Bouffard and their crews of trained beekeepers. With precision, they remove the liquid gold from hives by centrifuge, ensuring that pollen, trace minerals, and complex sugars are never compromised during the honey harvest. They then pour the honey through a stainless-steel sieve to remove potential bee legs and wings, wax caps, and miniature tiaras before bottling it and selling it to specialty stores, farmer's market visitors, and online customers.

A similar procedure happens in other parts of the country at Round Rock's beekeeping schools. During classes, Konrad Bouffard and Beekeeping Academy teachers impart their beekeeping knowledge upon suited-up students while they extract honey from a live beehive. Along the way, novices learn about the finer points of raising bees and keeping them healthy, as well as bee handling and lullaby-buzzing.
