Tanya and her husband Chuck are small-scale beekeepers with approximately 150 colonies. Bee Friendly Austin is a small Certified Naturally Grown Apiary in Southwest Austin. Tanya tends the Top Bar Hives and teaches beginner and hands-on beekeeping classes, while Chuck works with the Langstroth Hives and also builds beehives from beautiful milled cedar. We sell all natural raw honey, beeswax, pollen, handmade soaps, lip balm, lotion bars, and more! Tanya's book, Beginner Beekeeping, is a great novice tool for getting started in beekeeping! In 2013 Bee Friendly Austin founded the Central Texas Tour de Hives where folks can tour different bee yards between Georgetown and Dripping Springs. The Tour de Hives has helped thousands of visitors learn about the amazing honey bee and see how beekeepers keep bees in their own backyards. The tour date coincides with National Honey Bee Day, the 3rd Saturday in August and is a great family event.
