What you'll do

A bee hive tour! You have probably seen the inside of dozens of your friends houses. But, have you ever been shown the inside of a beehive first hand?! Probably not.

See behind the scenes of by beekeeping business and learn some fun facts about honey bees.

After a nice introduction we will proceed to throw on our suits(I have a few that you can wear with gloves, you don’t have to stand close during the inspection if you choose not to). Then we will walk to the bees to show you hands on all of the parts of a hive and how truly fascinating these little bees can be. Along the way feel free to ask as many questions as you would like.

Perfect for nature lovers, future bee keepers and gardeners.

Not suggested if you are highly allergic to honey bees. My bees are gentle but I would hate for someone to get hurt due to an allergic reaction.

I am a 23 year old avid beekeeper and Entrepreneur. Last year I had one single hive to help out in my grand parents garden. Once I had that one hive I was hooked! I spent all of this pst winter doing research to be successful and in January 2020 I started Lorob Bees LLC. I have now grown to 30 hives with a goal of 50 for the season. I have over 1500 acres that people have said that I can host bees on as I need to expand my business. I enjoy sharing the exciting facts and functions of honey bees with everyone to help spread awareness because we really need our pollinators.

Highly recommend!! We are a family of 4 with kids who are 9 and 12. We have been interested in beekeeping for a while now, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. It was incredibly helpful to get Rob's perspective and hear his stories about how getting into beekeeping went for him. He gave great advice and we're going to be looking into two NUCs for this spring (you'll have to go learn from him to know what I mean ;) The best part though, was how Rob showed us how to manage a hive and then stood back, as we all tried it! Our 9 year-old went first, cracked open a hive and took out frames to look for the queen - so cool! Rob is a goal-oriented entrepreneur and we loved having our kids exposed to his energy and drive! Thanks Rob!

My husband and I had a great time. We were slightly hesitant at first because we are scared of bees but Rob made us feel very welcomed and reassured us that we were in good hands. With the proper safety protection gear and instructions, we felt reassured and that we were in good hands. Overall, rob was very knowledgeable and gave us the backstory of how he got started up till present day. We got to feed the bees, we were able to examine inside the hives and even locate the queen bee for each hive! He explains every little bit of detail as he went and was able to answer all of our questions. We were able to get a taste of the honey that has bees produced as well as free samples of his organic honey lip balm!!! I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who is interested in this particular topic. Individuals who are afraid of bugs, rest a sure that if WE can do it, anyone can!!
