About Bee Tree Farm & Dairy and Jenna
Bee Tree Dairy & Farm is owned by Jenna Kelly-Landes and her husband, Jeremy. Bee Tree produces fresh goat cheese from their own herd of dairy goats just 15 miles east of Austin. The dairy is the result of Jenna's love affair with cheese and two goats named Pearlsnaps and Jolene. At Bee Tree Farm & Dairy the animals are family and the family is composed of cranky, bossy, and beautiful Alpine and Nubian goats.
About Two Hives Honey and Tara
Two Hives Honey began with a gal who wanted to embark on a beekeeping adventure, but didn’t have the backyard space to house her hive. A good friend and neighbor agreed to let Tara place hives in his backyard and a new passion, and a business, was born. Two Hives sells local, raw honey and comb honey, and offers various programs and classes to help other Central Texans also discover the wonders of honey bees.
