Vendor Profile: Round Rock Honey.

From field to hive to table, Round Rock Honey is never anything more or less than nature intended it to be. That which the bees give us, we give you. When we say 100% honey, we mean it!!

Round Rock honey is not a varietal honey, but instead a true wildflower honey. Producing wildflower honey is difficult, and yields unpredictable, but in the opinion of Round Rock Honey owners Konrad and Elizabeth Bouffard, it is more important to focus on quality than on quantity!

The emphasis on quality at Round Rock Honey extends to the harvest and packaging as well. Honey is “robbed” on a regular basis (season & weather permitting), and promptly bottled. Although all our honey is poured through a stainless steel sieve to remove bee legs and wings as well as wax caps, it is never heated or filtered. We remove honey from the hives by centrifuge, at room temperature. This is done so that the pollens, trace minerals, and complex sugars that occur naturally in our honey are never compromised.

Unlike the big honey conglomerates, we don’t use diatomaceous earth to make the honey clear, or add heat to extend shelf life.

Hive management at Round Rock Honey is given just as much attention as everything else. All hives are clustered in small groups numbering no more than fifteen per site, and are spread across more than 90 different locations – from Hutto in the east to Kingsland in the west, from Georgetown in the north to Bee Caves in the south insure the most diverse mix of pollens possible. The placement strategy for Round Rock Honey is designed to capture pollens from central Texas’ various “microclimates”. This ensures our customers get honey from plants belonging to the desert biome west of the Balcones Escarpment, as well as plants from the Great Plains biome to the east.
