O que você fará

We start off by explaining many interesting facts about these fascinating little creatures called honey bees. In the beginning we will walk around the gardens to view some of the tropical plants and observe the zillions of bees as they visit their favorite flowers in search of nectar and pollen. You will learn about the different parts of a Langstroth bee hive and how we eventually get our honey from the hive. After talking about bees for a bit we will light a smoker which is used to mask bee alarm pheromone and helps to keep bees calm. Then we will walk over to the apiary and open a hive to observe the busy bees at work. Everyone will wear a protective beekeeper jacket and gloves and learn about appropriate apiary etiquette. You will have the opportunity to hold a frame and observe the honey bees up close. This is where we will see the different types of honey bees in the hive and possibly witness baby bees emerging from a cell in the comb. And if we're lucky, we might even see the queen !

I am one of the luckiest people in the world who for the last 5 years has managed our 12-16 bee hives (apiary). I get to spend time with these honey bees using natural beekeeping techniques that produces some of the best tasting honey. Besides beekeeping, my other passion is gardening which means growing fresh veggies, unique fruits and especially bee and butterfly friendly flowers at our Florida Bee Farm. Florida Bee Farm is completely solar powered and on a private little piece of land at the end of a dirt road.

Onde você estará

We'll start off sitting under a beautiful Banyan tree which is rare for this part of Florida. That is where we'll learn some interesting facts about honey bees. Next we'll be in the apiary or bee hive area which about 50' away. And finally we'll wrap it up back under the Banyan tree and possibly a walk in the gardens to see what's blooming and to observe the many bees moving among the flowers we grow. All outdoors

Coisas para não esquecer

Política de cancelamento

Para receber um reembolso integral, cancele pelo menos 7 dias antes da data programada para o início da experiência ou em até 24 horas após a compra.

Política de comunicação

Comunique-se sempre pelo Airbnb. Para proteger seu pagamento, nunca transfira dinheiro ou se comunique fora do site ou do aplicativo do Airbnb.

Requisitos dos hóspedes

No máximo 5 hóspedes com 9 anos ou mais podem participar. If you are allergic to bee stings then this probably isn't the best activity for you. Even though it's pretty rare for somebody to get stung at The Bee Farm.

Mais dicas

If the weather is rainy we will have to reschedule as it wouldn't be the best experience for the bees or you. Also everyone will need to sign a waiver.
