Tour a beehive

Take a peek inside our apiary and learn the basics of a honey bee colony, from how they store food to how they raise young bees to how they make honey. After exploring the hive, we'll enjoy a honey tasting picnic, sampling honeys harvested in different seasons and different parts of the world. This tour is intended for those who are curious about and open to honey bees!

A great activity to do with friends and family.
