Animal experience hosted by Elis

60 mins
Includes food
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Our farm stand is just off the road at our home, and next to our gardens. Lumi, our Greeter dog, will welcome you. She's friendly with other dogs and children.

The Bee Experience starts by learning about bee basics, and handling a model hive component with illustrative photographs all about the bees.

Everyone will get to make a salve to take home, made by melting our beeswax into food grade oil. Salves have lots of uses - medicinal, moisturizing and even just for scent. A selection of Essential Oils are available to scent the salve.

While the salve is cooling, we'll go outside and taste three different kinds of honey - clear early summer honey, mid-summer wildflower and buckwheat honey to appreciate the seasonal and floral variations.

The farmstand also features a hand-made, oversized wooden bee frame puzzle, and colouring pages are available for kids. Dress up like your favourite bee, and stand in front of the bee wings on our farm stand for a photo memory! Suitable for all ages!

While you're here, you can also see a solar beeswax melter works, explore the pollinator friendly plants around the farm stand and view the holz hauzen and off grid property.

I've been a beekeeper for five years in Prince Edward County, living on an off-grid homestead with my partner, adding honey and salves to our garden produce which helps sustain us all year long.

I'm passionate about growing and making things which are good for us and the planet. I'm also passionate about educating - about bees, how they provide food for us, our connection with the natural world and how we can protect it.

Elis was welcoming and happy to share her passion. Learned a lot i did not know and had fun doing it. Felt safe and clean.

I went with two kids (8, 10) and they loved the experience. It's just enough knowledge and the right length and number of activities to keep kids engaged for a very fast hour - the kids thought they'd been there for five minutes! Lumi is adorable and very friendly, and visits are limited to one family at a time for safety. A really great local experience. The gift shop also stocks goods from other local craftspeople and farmers so you can support a few local trades in one visit! Highly recommend.

Really cool beekeeping experience, learning from someone who's an expert! The experience is well-done, with slides, samples, stories, and more. Definitely worth the money.

We really enjoyed meeting Elis and learning about bees and honey. The Bee Experience is ideal for families with children but as 6 adults we still had a fantastic time.

More tips

Although there are no bees directly involved in the Experience, we are out in nature, so there are bugs. Wearing low scent is always a good idea, and bring your sense of adventure! We're happy to have kids and folks in wheelchairs. Just let us know so we can serve you better!
