Two Hives’ liquid gold is harvested from neighborhoods all within 20 miles of downtown Austin and hand jarred by a team of beekeepers.
Two Hives Raw Honey
Two Hives Honey was started by Tara Chapman, a native from the tiny West Texas town of Smyer, Texas. After graduation from Duke University in 2003, Tara’s expanding world grew even larger when she was offered a job with the Central Intelligence Agency. Tara spent the next 10 years working for the federal government, filling up that new passport with stamps from countries such as Afghanistan, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, and Pakistan.
On a fateful day in Austin, Tara took her first beekeeping class with a friend, Gina, now a member of the Two Hives team. Inspired and in love with the bees, Tara quit her government job to work for a beekeeper in East Texas rearing queen bees for 4 months. What started a solopreneur running hive tours for Meetup groups on 2 neighborhood hives has evolved into a socially conscious business that aims to educate our community, support other local businesses, and of course, offer you the best damn honey Texas bees can make.
