What you'll do

It is said that bees enjoy a secret life, but there is a fascinating story behind that life that should be made available for all to witness!

Join us for a "Bee incredible" journey, as we explore the work of Apiarists (Beekeepers). You will be guided on a 1.5 to 2 hour tour (depending on the size of the group) encompassing the miraculous work of bees.

Bees undertake the extraordinary important job of helping to mature and grow many of the plants we enjoy and providing a food source - honey - that is globally consumed and universally loved.

If you're feeling exceptionally brave, you can don a full protective gear and open a bee hive for a closer look into the habitat of bees, the Brood Box (nest). Observe the Queen bee laying eggs, while learning about the unique roles and responsibilities of drone and worker bees. You'll be able to taste the honeycomb (if available) and sample sweet honey from the source; which has been used for centuries for its naturopathic or medicinal purposes.

This tasty, unique and exceptionally enlightening experience in beekeeping is a can't miss opportunity for nature enthusiasts and is appropriate and entertaining for all guests ages 8 and up.

If you have a large group and need a special date and time, please send a special request. I am consistently listed as 1 of the top 3 Experiences in Metro Atlanta. You will not be disappointed.

If you have any interest in honeybees and good conversation, come see Edward! He has stories to tell, and he puts great effort into making sure that you walk away with new knowledge and appreciation of the honeybees and their social structure. Don’t hesitate! If I lived in the area, I’d be a frequent honey customer.

If you’re thinking about it DO IT! Edward is such a kind and patient spirit. He answers each question and shows you the entire process of being a bee keeper. I’m seriously considering purchasing his “starter kit” to become a beekeeper myself! He even allowed us to see his land and pond. I’ll be back for sure!

This was such an awesome way to celebrate our anniversary. We have been thinking about picking up beekeeping as a hobby this past year. Edward did such an amazing job telling us the back story on bees & also walking us through his process! He made sure that safety was his top priority & also made sure everyone got the full experience. I recommend 1000 times!

so much fun! Edward walked us through a lot of information - types of bees, their jobs, life, everything. We then got a chance to see and hold the hives and get a closer look, before getting a chance to taste some honey. A lot of fun, felt very safe, and super informative!

This experience was so much fun! Edward is a great host. We learned so much about bees. The best part was holding the frames with bees all over them and finding the queen in one of the hives. Give this experience a try. You will not be disappointed!!
