Do you need bees? We have them. Currently keeping bees and managing colonies in the following counties:
In Texas, acreage of 5-20 acres can qualify for a special land valuation under 1-d-1 (Open-Space) Agricultural Use Appraisal (sometimes called an ag exemption). We keep bees on qualifying land in the Brazos County and surrounding areas. If you’d like to learn more, fill out the form below.
We partner with locals to keep bee hives across the Brazos Valley. By partnering with us we offer information about beekeeping and apiary management. We have the resources and knowledge to help our local partners succeed in bee keeping and enjoy the benefits of hosting a hive. These benefits include but are not limited to hyperlocal honey (most people’s favorite), stewardship of the environment, and of course the joys of beekeeping 🙂
Did you know that you can keep bees for an agricultural purposes in Texas? By providing land for productive bees, you can even save money on your property taxes while giving back to the beekeeping community by supporting bees and beekeepers. We’re here to help you through the process without the extensive work of beekeeping. If you’re interested in having the “Ag Exemption” and doing the work yourself, we’re happy to help you get started – we offer bee packages and starter packs to help you get set up.
Keeping bees alive is a tough job – it requires monitoring of their forage and food sources, attention to detail about the health of the hive internally, and the knowledge to correct problems when they arise. 44% of hives are lost annually (as reported by beekeepers – 2018) and we offer guarantees on our rented hives to maintain Agricultural minimums for your land.
