The Valley Hive Beekeeping Experience

Reserve Your Spot

You will experience a day in the life of a Beekeeper when you enroll in our Beekeeping Experience! Click here to view available dates. If you would like to add your name to our mailing list, please sign up for our newsletter, and we will notify you of upcoming dates as well.

Children 10 years and older are welcome, unless you have made prior arrangements with us.

What Can I Expect?

In 2 hours, you’ll see what a honeybee experiences over the course of a lifetime, and what a beekeeper experiences over the course of a day. Enjoy the serenity and beauty of the surrounding landscape. Visit our showroom complete with a fully-functional glass observation hive, venture into an apiary, and finish up with some raw, local honey. During the apiary portion of the tour, you’ll put on a bee suit and assist the beekeeper in opening active hives and performing routine hive inspections.

What Are the Highlights?


Look inside a Glass Observation Hive

While you gaze at bees inside a massive glass observation hive, you will learn interesting facts, such as how many millions of flowers bees need to visit to produce a single pound of honey.

Suit Up

Wear a bee suit and experience how it feels to be inside an apiary. Open hives with a beekeeper and learn about the extraordinary life of the honeybee. Bring a camera to capture this unique, one-of-a-kind experience.

Have a Taste

Depending on the season and the hives’ productivity, you will either help extract honey from the frames of our hives, or enjoy a local honey tasting.

Children 10 years and older are welcome, unless you have made prior arrangements with us.
