Did you know the Texas honey industry is one of the largest in the country? According to the USDA, Texas produced 7.5 million pounds of honey from 126,000 honey-producing bee colonies in 2019.
Whether you like it in your tea, on a biscuit, or by itself, here are a few local bee farms where you can grab a jar of the sweet syrup.
