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!

Our guide Whitney was super awesome and so kind. She took us straight to the hives so we could take advantage of the cooler morning weather. She was so excited to take our photos and answer all our questions. I highly recommend this activity to anyone in the area!
