Wat je gaat doen

As our guest, you’ll participate in one of our unique hands-on beekeeping tours. You will explore the secrets of the beehives, meet the bees, and enjoy culinary treats! First, you will peruse our beekeeping museum, where you will be familiarized with the details of our operation: how we got our start, where our bees are located around the island, how we “follow the bloom,” and how we process the honey. You will then join our beekeeper for a fun and educational exploration of the interior of live beehives. You’ll learn the differences between queen, drone, and worker bees. Watch a waggle dance, and witness baby bees emerging from the comb. You can even try your hand at handling a frame of bees! Guests will then tour our full operation, including the warehouse where we extract and pack an average of 400,000 pounds of honey a year! We will also stroll through our queen-raising yard, and you’ll observe how we breed and raise queen bees as a small commercial operation. We will finish up our tour back at the museum, where you will have the opportunity to sample the unique natural flavors of our single-blossom honeys produced from different flowers growing around the island.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Our first stop is in the museum, a small artfully designed small building on our farm. We then go visit the demo beehives where, from behind the safety of a screen, visitors can observe the interior of a beehive or don a bee veil and try their hand at holding a frame of bees for themselves. We then will walk a few yards to see our warehouse and then will go back outdoors to see the queen yard. Our facility overlooks beautiful Kealakekua Bay.
