活動內容

You will learn how bees make honey, the importance of honey bee pollination, various honey bee types, difficulties facing the modern beekeeper, how to inspect a hive, and taste different honey samples!

We start with an introductory discussion providing an overview of your experience, then move into bee genetics, how bees make honey, and a description of beekeeping equipment and practices.

Then you will put on a full protective bee suit and we will tour our apiary located here at the Honey Depot - YES, we will inspect hives together to search for the Queen!! (NOTE: It must be a warm day without rain and above 55* F to conduct apiary portion of the tour -- typically from April 1 - October 31. Otherwise we will stay inside! )

Afterwards, you can taste different types of honey from around Kentucky and other parts of the country. Each participant will receive a 1-lb. jar of our wildflower honey.
Other things to note
Will you get stung by a bee? Probably not, but possible. We will provide you with a full bee suit and encourage you to wear it while outside during the tour of our apiary.

Saving bees and teaching others about these amazing creatures is our passion! As the owner of HoneyBear Farms KY, I conduct beekeeping seminars, teach classes and host mentoring sessions regularly. I am also an officer with the KY State Beekeeping Association and an instructor for the Midwest Master Beekeeping Program.
Additionally, I am working towards obtaining my Master Beekeeping Certification from the Eastern Apicultural Society.
Your tour is located at our Honey Depot, which is the site of our beekeeping store and apiary, where we keep around 40 hives.

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!

I learned so much about beekeeping and the staff was super friendly. They support other local businesses and I thoroughly enjoyed my tour!

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!
