Bees are our business!

We are closing for January 2018 to take a short break while the bees rest for winter. Classes start up again in February! Bee Friendly Austin began as a simple backyard apiary in 2013, and quickly grew into our full-time passion as we gained knowledge and experience with bees and beekeepers in Central Texas. Our goal is to provide the best education, the highest quality equipment, and superior, mite resistant, bee stock to help create a strong foundation as you embark on your own journey into beekeeping. With successful tools, you can enjoy your newfound passion, your bees will thrive, and together we will save the world, one bee at a time!

We have raw local wildflower and select Texas seasonal varietals in classic glass jars. Click here to view locations that carry our honey...

Tanya's bee 101 class is wonderful, she is a fun teacher that will give you the confidence to be a beekeeper! I would highly recommend Bee Friendly as a great place to learn about beekeeping!
