We are doing our very best to adhere to the local current COVID guidelines set forth for the city & county of Los Angeles. All of our staff has been fully vaccinated. Since we will be working in small groups, in close proximity to one another, we can only accommodate vaccinated people at this time. As soon as conditions change, we will update these guidelines.
- Children over 12 years of age are welcome with an adult. Younger children are permitted on a case-by-case basis.
- Due to the popularity of this event, dates fill up quickly. There are no refunds for canceled or missed appointments.
Ever wondered what life is like inside a bustling beehive? Here is your chance to see firsthand how bees work together inside of a colony to produce honey and so much more. “Busy as a bee” will take on new meaning as you watch these industrious little creatures buzz around from one place to another communicating with their sisters in the most fascinating way. That’s right, inside the hive, all the worker bees are girls. The boys have one important job which cannot be overlooked. But we’ll tell you all about that when we see you. During your visit, as you take turns holding frames full of bees, you may be lucky enough to spot the queen bee laying eggs into tiny honeycomb shaped wax cells. In a given day, she can lay more than 2,000 eggs! As you will see, there is a lot of work to be done inside the hive. However, you’ll leave the work to us and the bees when you visit the hive, put on a bee suit and follow us into the bee yard to experience a day in the life of a beekeeper.
