This is an incredibly informative and unique way to see how honey is made and our plants get pollinate. Our guide was excellent and the honey tasting was a wonderful way to start the day!! I would highly recommend this unique and charming experience.

Leah (hope I spelt that correct!) was an amazing tour guide! This was such a cool experience! It was (in her words) truly fascinating to learn about the bees then get up close and personal. She honestly made me think about having a hive at home. 10/10 recommend.

I compare our guide Whitney to Bill Nye. The tour was all about the science and the current process of bee keeping. This tour is the ULTIMATE experience. Met at the shop, tasted numerous honeys, given a bottle of honey, given handouts on upcoming events at the shop and bee school, education on Bees and Bee products, put on bee suits and spent plenty of time spying on several bee colonies, got some pictures in our suits, talked to a donkey, and came back to the shop to of course shop. The bee suites were actually very comfortable. It’s hard not to have a love and appreciation for our pollinators after this tour. I highly recommend this experience to locals and tourist.

What a great experience! It was so fun doing something that I would never otherwise have a chance to do, and also a nice break from distillery tours! The staff was very knowledgeable and took pride in what they do.

Our host was wonderful. Knowledgeable about the bees and very careful and considerate. I figured we would gear up and get to see some hives up close, I had no idea we'd get to hold honeycombs. I learned so much about bees and am no considering starting my own urban beehive. Wish I lived in the area to take their beekeeping classes. Also the honey is delicious!
