I started Bees-For-All four years ago in Austin, Texas. Our aim is to promote conservation and habitat restoration for pollinators through beekeeping. We fund our efforts through selling our delicious honey, as well as consulting, beekeeping lessons, and honey-tasting experiences. I believe beekeeping has the potential to turn every garden, field, or ranch into a paradise for pollinators and the animals who depend on them; to teach the younger generation about the importance of food, and the beauty and value of the natural world; and to bring us together as a community.

Responsible interactions

All hosts must follow guidelines created with World Animal Protection.

Caring, expert hosts

Learn from biologists, conservationists, farmers, and more.

Diverse animals

Meet over 300 kinds of animals, from alpacas to zebras.

Where you'll be

We will be at one of our many Bees-For-All locations around the Bee Cave and Lakeway areas of Austin. We will most likely use one of our more picturesque locations, and we tend to choose our location based on whichever one has the strongest, most active hive, which provides a more exciting and informative teaching opportunity.

10/10 would definitely recommend. I learned so much about bee’s in just a short time. The honey, cheese and fruit provided for us at the end was a pleasant touch. Loved the beekeeping suits. Peter and his wife are great, they are so kind and I’m glad they’re beekeepers. The hospitality was unmatched.

My favorite thing we did on our vacation! Peter and his wife were so friendly and accommodating. My only complaint is now I don’t want to buy store bought honey! Lol. Being up close and personal with the bees and their hives was spectacular.

We had a great time learning beekeeping with Peter, Michelle, and Max. We even got to see the queen bee! Wear long pants, high socks, and closed shoes. And have room to eat lots of cheese, fruit, and honey!

Peter and his wife were very generous with the time and offerings. It’s always a pleasure to hear people passionately speak about a subject they are enamored with. It was an overall pleasant and unique experience.
