The TV Show:

Charlie the Beekeeper rescues honeybees from desperate and dangerous situations and makes lots of friends along the way!



Welcome to Charlie Bee Company LLC of New Braunfels, Texas!

Beekeeper Charlie Agar serves clients all along the I-35 corridor from San Antonio to Austin.

Charlie captures nuisance honey bees from walls and trees and takes them to a rural “bee-hab” for a little rehabilitation. He then leases bees for agricultural tax valuation on ranch properties all across the area. Charlie also teaches a beginner beekeeping course at his apiary in New Braunfels and all are welcome, and he consults with beekeepers on a case-by-case basis. The byproduct of all this bee work is of course golden delicious Texas Hill Country honey Charlie likes to call “Liquid Sunshine.” For honey orders or help with all things honey bees in and around New Braunfels, Texas, contact Charlie by phone or text at 830.708.8797 or by email at . His work is now the stuff of a reality TV series you can stream on PBS Austin or wherever you watch PBS!
