The Buzz at Our Texas Guest Ranch

Monday, July 15th, 2013

We’re preparing for our first harvest here at BlissWood, but it’s not the usual crop. Just when you thought BlissWood couldn’t get any sweeter, we’re getting ready] to harvest honey! Of course, we can’t take all the credit – we’ve got a hive of hard-working bees here. And if all goes well, we’ll soon have fresh honey available on our Texas guest ranch.

Thousands of years ago in ancient Rome, the historian Pliny the Elder called honey the finest, most health-promoting liquid known to man. It’s hard to believe, but honey does have many proven health benefits. We all know that it’s a tasty natural sweetener, but it’s more than just a sweet treat. Honey contains 18 amino acids, as well as many vitamins and minerals.

Honey is also believed to improve sleep and relaxation and naturally reduce allergy symptoms. It’s even used to heal cuts and scrapes!  With all these fantastic properties, it’s no wonder that beekeeping is becoming such a popular pastime!

Texas guest ranch

It’s a tricky business, but our beekeeper here on the ranch is a pro. Paul Casteig from Royal Ridge Honey knows that in order to produce the best quality honey, it is never heated or filtered during harvest.  And it’s always hand-packed in glass containers and never in plastic.

And to ensure the most natural product, our bees’ territory is free of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, genetically modified crops, and anything else that Mother Nature herself would not approve of.  That’s how we know that you won’t find a purer specimen of the golden food anywhere.

So if you’re looking for a sweet getaway, consider planning a trip to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch.  In addition to a relaxing stay at our beautiful Texas guest ranch, you might even get to see the hive in action!  Call us today at 713-301-3235 or check availability online.

BlissWood has everything you need for a successful birthday bash.  It’s a great location for all sorts of fun in the sun. The guests at this party had a blast splashing in the pool at the Dog Trot House. And all that swimming really helps to work up an appetite for hot dogs, hamburgers, and, of course, some birthday cake.

On top of that, BlissWood is home to lots of animals, too!  We’re home to bison, black buck antelope, fallow deer, potbellied pigs, peacocks, alpaca, and miniature donkeys. And these lucky kids got a chance to hold the 10-day-old puppies that were born on the ranch to a dog we fostered through Border Collie Rescue.  And while we can’t guarantee adorable newborn puppies for every party, we can guarantee a whole lot of fun.

At BlissWood, you can create the perfect blend of celebration.  You can have a pool party, a cookout, and a petting zoo, all in one!  There’s lots of room and plenty to do.  So whether your party is big or small, we’ve got you covered.  And not only will it be an unforgettable event, when you host your birthday party at our ranch, it’s a lot less housecleaning for you!
