Our Story

Moving from Alaska to Texas was quite the change! Shortly after arriving in Texas, we decided to embrace the Texas life and purchased a fixer-upper ranch along with iconic Texas Longhorns. Prior to this, we were an active-duty US Coast Guard family. As a military family, we moved 12 times and had the wonderful opportunity to live all over the US and meet some great folks.

Living the ranch life has been an epic change for this suburban family. We are building our agriculture enterprise around all the goodness that comes from our pastures, where there is plenty of fresh air and sunshine and space to roam for our cattle and Guinea hens.

 

As we continue 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 jump in to help when they come out to visit (two live in Seattle, one lives in Alaska).

My mom and brother come out from Austin to help out – with the hopes of getting some honey!

We are passionate about helping the bees and allowing them to thrive. We take pride in how we take care of our livestock and bees. We strive to do what is morally and ethically right in all aspects of our business. We hope to be a model for others in operating a sustainable, green business.

We love to answer any questions you might have on beekeeping or Longhorn cattle raising – our favorite subjects!

What’s going on at the Ranch?
Something is always going on at the ranch. We have honey and longhorns for sale. We also have well built 5 frame NUC hives available for purchase.

The honey is raw and pure, harvested from our own hives in the back pasture. We have acres of wildflowers and native plants which the bees collect nectar and pollen from, making the honey so delicious.

We started our beekeeping journey 3 years ago with the purchase of our first hive which we named The Original. We now have 2 beeyards full of hives and have a family honey business.   The beekeeping world has fascinated us and we have learned so much along the way. We love sharing our knowledge and provide beekeeping consultation.
