Gretchen Bee Ranch
Beekeepers Mark And Thien Gretchen Gretchen Bee ranch continues to grow! Look hard and you might spot our beehives along the back roads of Guadalupe, Gonzales, Medina and Frio Counties of South Texas. Abundant rains this year resulted in a wonderful honey crop and healthy bees. Our bees even managed to make a small amount of mesquite blossom honey – the first
we’ve had in a couple of years! We’ve always thought that honey produced in South Texas is among the finest in the world – and this year the bees really delivered the goods.

Our new bee-centered products this year are a delightful pecan creamed honey, a soothing all-natural lip balm and pure beeswax tea light candles.
  And because our mission is to help restore honeybees to our environment, we now offer beekeeping gear to those who want to take the plunge into beekeeping. We want to help folks become successful beekeepers because we think that’s a terrific and fun way to keep the honeybees buzzing in a garden near you.

Gretchen Bee Ranch Lip Balm
Gretchen Bee Ranch Lip Balm
We like to keep things simple at the Bee Ranch, and that includes our soothing lip balm. Think of beeswax, but soft and creamy. While the ingredients are simple, the results can be a bit more complicated – oohing, aahing, easy smiles. And kissing – a lot more kissing. (learn more)


Gretchen Bee Ranch Honey Scrub

Our Honey Scrub is all natural and unique, using only honey crystals as the exfoliant. Honey is a soothing agent that leaves skin feeling fresh while the crystals help gently remove dead skin. The Vitamin E oil we add gives skin a golden honey glow and also helps heal blemishes.  (learn more)
