Our Approach

Currently, we sell honey produced on our land by our bees. We harvest and bottle our raw, enzyme-packed honey ourselves.  Additionally, we grow seasonal, chemical free vegetables in a high-tunnel system, as well as traditional open-air crops. We believe sustainable agriculture is important, therefore we do not practice the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, and we use only natural methods (such as cover crops, mushroom compost, natural manure, crop rotation) to maintain the health of our soil. We have a growing flock of chickens and eventually plan to offer eggs. Be sure to check out our CSA (community supported agriculture) program for local families. If you are interested, please send us a message!

 
 

Our Story

In 2008, after college and ten years in the Marine Corps, including three combat tours in Iraq, we moved from Newport Beach, California, to the pine forests of The Woodlands in southeast Texas. From what started as a small container garden in California, to a 8’ x 25’ raised plot in the suburbs, we stepped off on a journey we didn’t even know we were on. The subtle therapeutic effects of gardening helped Jason quell his internal drive for danger and adventure – remnants of his Marine Corps days. However, we quickly outgrew the backyard plot and realized that our love for wide-open spaces, clean food and an outdoor lifestyle was turning into something bigger.  Land was purchased and the seed was sown; Angell’s Farmstead & Apiary was born.

Angell’s Farmstead & Apiary calls Grimes County, Texas, home. Our family farm practices sustainable agriculture on the border between east and central Texas. We are small but we are growing.  The farm currently produces fresh seasonal vegetables on 10-acres and maintains approximately eighteen honey bee colonies. You can purchase our vegetables through our CSA program,  local farmers markets, or enjoy them at various restaurants we sell to.
