Summer is HOT & we start the day early to compensate! Come experience the wonderful world of the honeybee where we encourage you to take pictures. We begin our two-hour journey at a farm's gate in Odessa Florida. As we make our way along a winding road you might observe Florida wildlife such as birds, turkeys, and deer. Upon arrival at our hives, we will begin with a short demonstration of the equipment utilized in beekeeping and then immediately start the hands-on experience. At this point you will be able to see, feel, hear and touch apis mellifera (the European honey bee!) as I guide you to a better understanding of these amazing creatures. During our time together you will manipulate equipment, ask questions and get a practical appreciation of the bees. After, you will enjoy a refreshment while we discuss your recent experiences. Upon completion, we provide a 5 oz honey jar and honey dipper to say thank you and as a memento of being a beekeper for a day.
