I had planned on going to a BEE KEEPING CLASS, but had never heard of Round Rock Honey. I heard about it through Groupon. I went to the class in Redwood City. I HIGHLY recommend this class.

The presentation was very informative. We purchased some of their products and they were very tasty. This was a very good introduction to bee-keeping, if you are considering having a hive as a hobbyist.

3 hours pretty well spent. Maybe consider selling some initial supplies at the workshop.

What You'll Get

Honeybees act as nature’s cupid, spreading love from flower to flower by distributing pollen and buzzing the harmonies of Boyz II Men songs. Harvest the nectar of amorous blooms with today’s Groupon to Round Rock Honey’s Redwood City location. Choose between the following options:

  • For $45, you get a three-hour intro-to-beekeeping class for one (a $125 value).
  • For $79, you get a three-hour intro-to-beekeeping class for two (a $250 value).

Click here for available class dates and see the website for further scheduled dates as they become available. Reservations are required a week in advance and are subject to availability.

Round Rock Honey’s owner, Konrad Bouffard, and instructor Richard Baxter collect 100 percent natural local-wildflower honey and train budding beekeepers to tame the striped buzzers. During the beekeeping class, master beekeepers steep neophytes in the nectar-harvesting basics, including an introduction to bees and information on hive handling, the No. 1 beekeeping 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.

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 will be available for purchase after hive handling.

About 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.
