Cherie teaching at the Observation Hive2014 Apiary Tours
Chinook Honey Company

Whether you are young or old, a visit with the bees at Chinook Honey Company is an experience you won’t soon forget. Knowledgeable guides will give comprehensive talks about the amazing bees, their colony structure and the many wonderful products they make. Using a working observation
hive you can witness an amazing variety of honey bee behavior without any danger of being stung. Depending on the time of year you could watch the queen laying eggs, the worker bees coming in with pollen or nectar, bees feeding the young brood and perhaps even watch as a young bee emerges from their wax comb. During a tour you will also learn the role of the beekeeper in keeping their bees happy and healthy. All tour activities are indoors and there is also a gift store that sells a vast array of honey and honey made products including ice cream and mead.
