2020 Beekeeping Experience Dates

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 gift store 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.

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.
