Producers of the Best Honey in 2008 according to the Dallas Observer, Round Rock Honey sells 100% natural honey thats culled from local wildflowers and trains budding beekeepers how to tame honey-bearing bugs for residential use. During the two-hour beekeeping class, Gretchen Bee Ranch master beekeeper Mark Gretchen imparts nectar neophytes with honey-harvesting basics, including an introduction to bees, hive handling, and how to whistle Flight of the Bumblebee with a mouth full of honey. Students keen on cultivating their own liquid gold will learn how to keep bees through changing seasons and safeguard their swarm from disease and parasites. Finally, participants get to don full beekeepers' garb (suits are provided) and gain hands-on experience at Round Rock's onsite apiary, conducting buzzing swarms of worker bees, even while the queen bee is on a diplomatic mission to discuss trade relations with Vladimir Putin. Beekeeping pupils should protect sting-attracting appendages by wearing blue jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, and boots or other ankle-covering shoes.
