Want a unique and educational experience unlike anything you’ve done before?

Farmer Tim takes adults and kids into the heart of a beehive! Thousands of buzzing bees fly around you as Farmer Tim explains how these tiny, yet powerful creatures work and live. Bee jackets will be provided, all you need to bring is your sense of fun and adventure!

Learn the fascinating inner workings of the hive and why bees vital to the local and global ecosystem. You will also learn about Africanized bees, the different properties and uses for honey (and other beehive products) and how to help bees at home. We have found that these tours make great for a bonding experience. Bring your kids, your spouse, your best friend or your date!

The Beekeeping Discovery Tour is designed for gardeners, nature enthusiasts, adventurers, foodies and other non-beekeepers, who want to learn more about bees; but who don’t necessarily want to become beekeepers. Many who have attended the tour have become inspired and gone on to become beekeepers themselves, but the tour is not designed to teach you how to beekeep. If you are serious about learning to keep bees, we recommend you start by taking the Intro to Beekeeping class. Some students, in the past, have chosen to start with the tour because they want to experience the hands on element first. That’s okay by us, but if you only take one class, make it the Intro to Beekeeping class.
