At The Spicewood Farm we speak the language of honey!
Who We Are

In his day job Chris Mathis is a building scientist. He helps manufacturers, code bodies, builders, architects, and many others, understand and work together to improve the energy efficiency and durability of all buildings.

He likes to say that he took up beekeeping to get away from building science. But, it turns out that honeybees are building scientists of the highest and most ancient order. So, he says, the joke is on him.

Teaching is one of Chris' natural gifts. Working with budding beekeepers - especially the young ones - is an especially rewarding joy for him.
