Hive Tours

Learn about the intriguing world of honey bees in a way that few get to experience: through the  hands­-on exploration of an active, living beehive! Your tour, led by a professional beekeeper, will include suiting up in protective gear, lighting a bee smoker, and getting up close with more than 100,000 bees.  Each tour is capped at 10 people, providing you an intimate experience of this fascinating species.

You will walk away with a better understanding of the importance of honey bees and why their survival is so important, and see firsthand why bees aren’t near as scary as many of us think! Watch honey bees at work creating honey, witness as new bees are ‘born’, and learn more about what you can do to help the health and survival of this vital species.  Tours include a taste of honey fresh from the hive.
