  • $45 for a three-hour introductory beekeeping class for one (a $125 value)
  • $79 for a three-hour introductory beekeeping class for two (a $250 value)

During the three-hour beekeeping class designed for beginners, a master beekeeper shares the basics of organic-honey harvesting, complete with an introduction to bees and hive handling. The beekeeper’s tips span all four seasons and encompass techniques for thwarting diseases and parasites that harm hives. Participants don full beekeeper garb—suits are provided—and gain hands-on experience at Round Rock Honey'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. Beekeeping pupils can tote cameras and should protect appendages by wearing blue jeans, long-sleeved shirts, and boots or other ankle-covering shoes. Due to limited roadside parking, Round Rock Honey recommends students carpool to the site. See the class schedule here.

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 2.5-hour 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.
