Apiary & Farm Tour
Come to Our Farm and Meet Our Bees!
We’re thrilled to share them with you in an up close and personal way! We’ll suit you up head-to-toe in a beekeeping suit, show you around our home apiary and take you inside one of our beehives.
We’ll show you the inner workings, explain what we look for in caring for our bees, and point out all the residents: the queen, worker bees and drones. As we move through the hive you’ll be able to hold a frame with the bees and we’ll make sure to take photos for you.
It’ll be a fascinating experience you’ll leave with a deeper appreciation and understanding of these amazing creatures.
We’ll answer all your honeybee questions, introduce you to our small herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats, if you like, and do some honey sampling back at the honey house.
