We are a small apiary operating out of Liberty Hill, Texas, right on the edge of the Texas Hill Country. Who is Bubba? Well, that’s a great question. Bubba is our 16 year old son (aka James). At the tender age of 11 Bubba wanted to know if he could have a beehive. Considering that we are a homeschooling family it seemed like a great way for Bubba to learn about bees, figure out if this is something he really wants to do, and to put it all down for me in a research paper. Fast forward 5 years and Bubba is now the owner of Bubba’s Beez.
He started it as a little hobby and word soon spread that we had honey. We ended up having more customers than honey, so over the years we have increased our product line to include not only honey, but beeswax products like lip balms and hand balms, and we’ve even written a cookbook. And, depending on the season, we also sell fresh bee pollen (people use it for many of the same reasons they do raw honey).
The picture on the left is of Bubba during his very first hive inspection back in 2011. He was at the tender age of 12 years old. Crazy how time flies.
And me? I’m Bubba’s mom, Meredith. You’ll find out much more about our beekeeping business and how the hives are progressing as I post updates here and there along the way.
Life is busy when you run an apiary and a homeschool, but that’s what makes our family so darn unique. We’re rocking the hives and loving every minute of it.
Till next time…bee good!
