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 led by a Two Hives Honey (7617 Nez Perce Trce, Manor, TX 78653) team member & 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.
