We Are the Owners/Beekeepers
Shannon and Lydia are the owners/beekeepers of Sunken Boot Honey. Our mission is to foster a natural habitat for the production of honey and other bee products, and for the area's diverse wildlife.
At the end of 2019, we began a native grass restoration project to return the land to the native prairie grasses and wildflowers. Unlike improved pasture grasses, native prairie grasses allow small prairie birds and mammals to construct micro-trails under the grass canopy, and travel and reproduce, all out of view of soaring hawks and other predators.
Our hives are registered with the Texas Apiary Inspection Services, which regulates the apiary industry in Texas.
Shannon and Lydia are participating in the Texas Master Beekeeper Program (TMBP), a voluntary educational program that aims to challenge a beekeeper’s knowledge of honey bees and beekeeping, by increasing the knowledge and skill level of participating beekeepers. The program is a five-year (minimum) beekeeper training program provided by the Texas Apiary Inspection Service in association with the Texas Beekeepers Association.
