School and Educational Tours
Thank you for your interest in our tours. It would be great to see you and your class of curious kids here at the farm.
Here are details about our tours:
We can accommodate small and large groups of all ages for approximately two hours. School classes are welcome to stay for lunch. We can split large groups into two or three smaller groups to insure a more intimate learning experience.
We conduct a bee-yard tour, a honey house tour, a beeswax candle making demonstration and a honeycomb tasting. The focus during our seminar is to continually encourage people to ask questions, and often answer with hands-on demonstrations or interactive discussions. At the conclusion of the session, each student is offered a taste of honeycomb, and will finish dip a small pair of beeswax candles to take home!
The seminar cost is $7.50 / student for supplies. All teachers and parent helpers are free of charge.
We look forward to hearing from you!
