Good Flow Honey Co. is a family business with three generations
currently involved. We started in the 1970’s with two hives that
multiplied into hundreds of hives over the years.
Bee locations have mostly been in and around Austin with some of
our best locations given to us by the late, great Papa Max Bachhofen
along the IH35 corridor between Austin and New Braunfels.
Back in the 70’s and 80’s sales centered on food buying cooperatives
and small health food stores which sprang up around the University of
Texas. Our market has expanded over the years but our approach is
pretty much the same: good product quality and good, respectful
service keep us going.
Our bee yards had their own varieties of flora and nectars which
produced the honey (s) we like and crops which usually average over
100 lbs. of honey a hive. Now we’re buying a lot of honey from other
beekeepers, and try to stick to varieties with the qualities we like. We
are Acacia people; we like the desert brush and tree honeys like Cat
Claw, Sage, Huajillo, Vara Dulce, Mesquite and Bee Brush. It’s ironic
how such rough land and its flora can produce some of the most
delicate, light, thick and frankly, some of the best honey in the world.
And no one is spraying it with insecticides or other chemicals! The
Wildflower we package comes from a variety of sources. We also have
white Clover from Montana, Orange Blossom, Avocado, and Vidrillo (Ice
Plant) because they are different, and interesting. We hope you find
them enjoyable as well.
