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.

This was a really cool experience. We had warm biscuits and a flight of honey waiting for us when we arrived. The hosts were very knowledgeable and welcomed lots of questions.

My 13 year old daughter who loves bees and I did this experience while on our vacation. It was highly informative, lots of fun and now she wants to keep a hive in our backyard, lol.

Great experience! Everyone in the group greatly enjoyed learning about beekeeping and bees. Also, it was fascinating to see inside of the hives, and everyone felt completely safe with the protective suits!

This is an incredibly informative and unique way to see how honey is made and our plants get pollinate. Our guide was excellent and the honey tasting was a wonderful way to start the day!! I would highly recommend this unique and charming experience.

Leah (hope I spelt that correct!) was an amazing tour guide! This was such a cool experience! It was (in her words) truly fascinating to learn about the bees then get up close and personal. She honestly made me think about having a hive at home. 10/10 recommend.
