Honey from Austin Honey Co. comes from bees that reside within 30 miles of the Texas Capitol.

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.

Austin Honey Company
All the bees that make Austin Honey Co.'s products reside within 30 miles of the Texas Capitol — find the honey at four farmers markets and a handful of local grocery stores. Pro tip: don’t skip the creamed honey.

Good Flow Honey Co.
This family-owned honey producer has been operating since the 1970s and has hives all along the I-35 corridor.

Two Hives Honey
You can also take beekeeping classes, a hive tour, and honey tastings at this local maker’s hive.
