Pickup Information

Below is a sample of the email you will receive a week or so before your scheduled pickup date:

Sample Information Only - The directions are not for all dates or locations

Greetings fellow and future beekeepers,

This message is to confirm the pickup schedule for next weekend and provide directions, basic information and instructions for picking up your order. Please note: We will be holding the basic beekeeping class from 10 am until around 2 pm. For those not attending the class, if possible please plan to come between 3:00 and 7:00 pm.

Our property is located a couple miles south of Somerset, TX (just south of San Antonio) between Somerset Rd. and highway 476 aka Benton City Rd. Look for our "The Bee Place" signs at the entrance and come on in the gate to the left with wood post and cattle panel fencing which will have the Bee Place signs on either side. You should be able to find a place to park to the left near the entrance. (please do not block the driveway.)

The physical address is only given in the actual email - this is to prevent unscheduled visits to the bee farm.
We are just outside of Somerset, TX 78069. Directions from San Antonio are detailed below:

Do's & Do not's & What you should bring.... You are coming to a "bee yard", so protective gear may be a good idea. If you ordered gear from us, we will have it on hand and available. Bees will be flying in the area and depending on the weather and other conditions, may be very active. If you or anyone in your party happen to be allergic to bee stings, please remain in your vehicle. The bees that are being picked up will be contained in hives and nuc boxes which are screened in with tops that will not come off during transport. Therefore they can be transported in the back of a car, truck, SUV etc without any problems. If you purchased the 4 or 5 frame Nuc format, they can be strapped down to prevent sliding around in the back of a truck.

If you are not able to make it out this coming weekend and other arrangements need to be made to get your order to you, please let me know asap.

From Downtown San Antonio... Follow I-35 S to Von Ormy. Take exit 140 from I-35 S 13 min (14.3 mi) Merge onto I-10 E/I-35 S Continue to follow I-35 S 14.1 mi Take exit 140 toward Texas 1604 Loop/Somerset 0.2 mi Merge onto Interstate 35 Access Rd 0.2 mi Turn left onto TX-1604 Loop ... etc
