Q: Bees are dangerous! How will you make sure that I'm safe?
A: Safety is our top priority. While in the apiary, you must wear the full bee suit we provide for you. Additionally, you must wear or bring close-toed shoes. No guests with exposed skin will be allowed in the apiary. Your visit to the apiary is optional. If you choose to skip the apiary tour, you will still have a fantastic day conducting a sensory analysis of the honeys, enjoying lunch, and learning about bees, honey, and the industry.
Q: Is this activity kid-friendly?
A: Children over the age of 5 are welcome to attend. However, the event has been developed for adults as it focuses on in-depth information about the honey industry, biology and ecology, and subtle flavors. It includes walking to and standing in the bee yard for approximately 45 minutes. Should you think that your child would succeed in this setting, we leave it up to you to decide. Contact us for more info as needed.
Q: Is this event accessible?
A: Each event location is unique. Please contact us for venue-specific information in advance.
Q: How can my business venue become a Honey Tastings and Apiary Tours location?
Q: What happens if we’re scheduled for an apiary tour and there’s bad weather?
Inclement weather may affect the tour’s ability to go into the apiary and work with the bees. If it’s raining, there are winds over 25 MPH, or we experience drastically cold or hot temperatures, we will modify the event to include an indoor bee talk using an observation hive and uninhabited hives.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
Guests may receive a full refund or credit up to 5 days prior to the event, less any transaction fees. Within 5 days of the event, guests will be charged the full ticket price. No-shows will be charged the full ticket price.
