Private Tours

A private beekeeping tour is an excellent way to accommodate large tour groups or customize learning experiences.

Honey Tasting  Experience

Join us as we explore the fascinating world of honey! At our honey tasting, you will learn about how bees make honey, and will taste a variety of honeys ranging from light to medium to dark color profiles. You will use a honey flavor wheel and color chart to explore the wide variety of aromas, colors and flavors of honeys, as you try to put words to what you smell, see, and taste.  Each attendee will track their impressions of each honey and we will compare and discuss these.   Plus, you will sample a variety of textures, including creamed, crystalized, and honey direct from the comb.  

*Honey tasting kits will be available for sale to take home to replicate this experience with your friends and family. 

Book online through a honey tasting event or call us to host your own private group party.  Honey tastings are perfect for bridal showers ("she met her honey"), baby showers ("parents to "bee"), first birthday ("sweet as can bee"), any age birthday party ("happy bee-day") and more!
