Beekeeping was a popular “hobby” for women at the turn of the century, but for a look at larger-scale Texas honey production at this time, check out the article “The Bee Industry of Texas” from the 1904 edition of the Texas Almanac here.

For information on present-day North Texas beekeeping, the website of the Dallas-based Texas Honeybee Guild is here.
