Our Story

Moving from Alaska to Texas was an epic change for us. Before starting Sandy Fork Pastures, we were an active-duty U.S. Coast Guard family. Like many military families, we moved multiple times across the U.S., having the opportunity to meet great people along the way. Upon arriving in Texas, we decided to embrace the Texas ranch life and purchased a fixer-upper ranch along with iconic Texas Longhorns.

Running a ranch has been life changing for this suburban family! The foundation of our agricultural business is centered around all the goodness that comes from our pastures, where there is plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and space for our cattle and other animals to roam.

As we continued to grow, we thought our pastures full of wildflowers would be perfect for beehives. Our beekeeping venture has grown from a hobby to a small family business. Our kids, extended family, and friends have all jumped in to help whenever they are in town with the hopes of getting some of that delicious honey.

Here at Sandy Fork Pastures, we believe in the importance of cultivating and sharing the goodness of our pastures. We are passionate about helping both our bees and livestock to thrive. We strive to do what is morally and ethically right in all aspects of our business. We want to be a model for others in operating a sustainable, green farm.

What’s happening at the Ranch?
Something is always going on at the ranch. We have honey, honeycomb, eggs, and Texas Longhorns for sale. The scenery throughout the 85 acres is perfect for photo sessions and filming.

Honey is an amazing, natural food. It is a healthy alternative for so many recipes and drinks. Our honey is raw and pure, harvested by us from our own hives in the back pasture. We have acres of wildflowers and native plants for the bees to collect nectar and pollen from making our honey oh so delicious.

Proudly made in the USA by our bees!

We started our beekeeping journey in 2017 with the purchase of our first hive that we named The Original. Fast forward, we now have multiple beeyards buzzing with bees and a thriving family run honey business. The beekeeping world fascinates us and we continue to learn as much as we can. We love sharing our knowledge and providing beekeeping consultation. We help clients set up beehives on their property and will do monthly check ups on their hives.
