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 Central Texas area – including Brazos County and surrounding areas. If you’d like to learn more, fill out the form below.

  • 5-20 acres. Your land can quality for Special Agricultural Land Valuation for keeping honeybees with this size of land in Texas. We require easy access to the bees and will work with you
  • 20+ acre tracts. Want bees added to your property? We seek larger land tracts where we can keep bees and have access to natural forage.
  • Helping you keep your own bees responsibly through mentorship and management.

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. 45.5% of hives are lost annually (as reported by Bee Informed Partnership – 2021) and we make up our own losses when keeping bees on your land.
