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! How is the Beehive Tour different from your beekeeping classes?
The Beehive 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 Host a Hive or even 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 Beekeping 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.
