BZ Honey provides pure local honey to the communities where we keep our bees.
When we received our first hives, we committed to maintaining our hives naturally to preserve the purity of BZ Honey. Today, we still honor that commitment to deliver the best possible honey. Our hives have never been treated with any chemicals that could contaminate the honey or the weaken our bees. Our honey is strained for clarity without filtering the pollen.
Our success with bees comes from a desire to ensure good bee health. We use integrated pest management to help the bees combat pests such as small hive beetles and varroa mites without relying on chemicals. We experiment with Langstroth hives and Warre hives to determine which provide healthier bees. We allow the bees to build their own honey comb without the need for chemical-laden foundation. We rear our own queens from high-performing hives that survive winter and local conditions.
Our hives are situated in suburban areas of Houston to provide local honey from those areas. We sell our honey directly through our website and at farmer’s markets situated near our bee yards. Most importantly, every farmer’s market that we sell through is close enough to one of our bee yards that our bees can fly to the market.
