Hive Tours

We now will offer guided tours of our Apiary facilities to individuals and small groups.

These hive tours are a "show & tell" type of experience which shows the basics of how the bees operate inside a hive.  We will show you the bees' food (honey, nectar, & pollen), worker & drone bees (and maybe the queen), and the eggs & larval stage baby bees. Depending on your comfort level, you may be able to hold a frames of bees, making this a very "hands-on" experience.  Do bring your camera so we can get pictures for you to take home with you.

  • $25/person, $50 minimum.  Maximum number of 6 people per group (we want everyone to get a good "up close" experience).
  • Children are welcome.  Kids under 10 will need a 1:1 ratio of kids to adults within your  group.  These hive tours are not appropriate for children under 4.
  • Wear close toed shoes & loose fitting pants.  We DO have a good supply of bee suits to fit most people.
