Lone Star Bee Company now offers a plain raw honey created by bees located in the Blackland Prairie region of central Texas! This wildflower blend is rich and sweet and stands on its own, so we’ve decided to offer this honey in its natural state and not infuse it with other ingredients – it is perfect as is!
This honey tells a unique and inspiring story about the Blackland Prairies of Texas. The region was named the Blackland Prairie from the rich soil once found throughout the prairie. The Blackland Prairie includes two narrow swaths of land of nearly 20,000 square miles running from the Red River on the Texas-Oklahoma border, through Dallas / Fort Worth and beyond San Antonio. In the early 1800s, the region was a tallgrass prairie, but by the end of the century most of the prairie was converted to farmland. Once a home for animals such as buffalo, wolves and jaguars, today the Blackland Prairies consist of less than one percent of its original prairie due to development, agriculture, and overgrazing.
But, there is some good news! The Native Prairies Association of Texas (Blackland Chapter) is a leading voice to identify, preserve, and promote prairies in Texas. Formed in July 2014, the Blackland Chapter members were spurred by the discovery of original Blackland Prairie parcels at White Rock Lake in Dallas. The chapter has been instrumental in shining a light upon and working to preserve the living history of the Blackland Prairies for generations to come. We thank these fine Texans for their dedication and appreciation of such an important cause!
