Book a private hive tour for yourself and your family or friends!
Private hive tours give you and your chosen group a hands-on beekeeping experience, complete with a cheese and honey pairing after you've completed a hive inspection. You will also take home a small chunk of honeycomb that you can use however you like, though I suggest putting it on a cheese & charcuterie board with other tasty delights, and inviting some friends over to enjoy it with some wine!
Tours are $180 + HST and will run for around 3 hours including the cheese and honey pairings, though I prefer not to keep an eye on the clock and they sometimes run into 4 hours with larger groups. Tours can be booked June through August, and I will work with you to arrange a date and time that suits both of us. You can include up to 9 adults and 3 children - suit sizing is listed below, and I require you to bring or wear jeans, long socks and close-toed shoes to add to your personal protection.
