OUR BEE BASICS DROP-IN PROGRAM WILL RESUME JUNE 4TH, 2020

Our Meadery program will remain on hold due to COVID19 restrictions. 

Our Group Programs have been suspended until further notice.

Registration for our 2020 program, Bee Basics, will open a week prior to our first tour (June 4th). Tours will have a maximum of 14 guests, and strict social distancing regulations will be followed. Only the program “Bee Basics” will be available at this time. 

We are happy to welcome school field trips, preschools, day camps, seniors groups and special interest groups to learn about bees and mead at the farm!

Our facilities are indoors and can accommodate groups of 10-55 people to be booked in advance.

We tailor our presentations to be appropriate for all ages, and take curriculum content into consideration with a range of activities for kids.  “Bee” sure to leave extra time to visit our farm store for honey products and gifts, and to enjoy our picnic area!
