Honey & Cheese Tasting at Two Hives Honey Ranch (In Person)
Life just got a bit sweeter. We are thrilled to host a tasting at the Two Hives Honey Ranch! This tasting will be held in the classroom barn and lead by Tara Chapman, owner of Two Hives Honey, & an Antonelli's cheesemonger. We will feature 5 cheeses, 5 Two Hives honey pairings, a few charcuterie bites, quicos (Spanish cornnuts), & Easy Tiger baguette. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage to enjoy during the tasting. The hosted event will last 1.5 hours. Afterwards, you'll have about 30 minutes to walk around the beautiful space.
About Two Hives:
Two Hives Honey was started by Tara Chapman, a native from the tiny West Texas town of Smyer, Texas. Tara had barely left Texas when she was accepted into Duke University. After graduation 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 Texas, 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.
Format of Tasting: Our goal is to maintain a socially distanced setting. You will be seated within ticket groups.
Cheese Plates: We will provide you with a cheese tasting on on our compostable bamboo plates which will be individually boxed. Please note this is different than our usual plating, but we will not be handling any food onsite. Honey will be placed on individual tasting spoons and will be placed on each table.
GROUPS: Please respect our event hosts' goal to create a positive and unforgettable experience for ALL attendees. If your group is loud or disruptive, our event hosts will give you a warning. If they must address you a second time you will be asked to leave the event with no refund given. Class is a lot of fun and there is time towards the end of the experience to open up and hang out.
