About Beekeeping Tours
We have finished the 2023 season but will soon start scheduling tours for the 2024 season!!
Many of our patrons wish to learn more about bees, but do not have the time or space to start their own beehive. We have created this opportunity to be an exciting way for families, church youth / school groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Trail life and American Heritage Girls groups to get an up close and personal look at life and work of the beekeeper and the honeybee.
The tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours and consists of a 45 minute familiarization class on bees, beekeeping equipment, pollination and products from the bee hive. You will then suit up in one of our beekeeper's suits and watch as our beekeeper opens a live bee hive with the group. Participants will have the opportunity to hold a frame of live bees if they wish. Take as many pictures as your wish!
How do I schedule a tour?
Tours are scheduled by reservation only.
We ask that all group tours have a minimum of 10 people, and the reservations must include ages and approx. suit sizes needed for the participants.
We do have "weebee" suits for the little ones, with our smallest suit about the size of a 4 year old.
Don't have 10 people?
No worries. We will have select dates for Family days, Homeschool days, Senior days and so on. Just email us with your information and we'll let you know the select Saturdays in May and June that we have set aside for these.
Keep updated on these by joining our newsletter or following us on Facebook or Instagram.
Remember, Bee flexible!
Beekeeping tours are weather dependent, for obvious reasons. If it is raining heavily, we do not open hives! We may potentially reschedule your tour in the event of heavy rain.
