Hive Tours

Hive Tours

Free Hive Tour - see bees and learn about beekeeping. Step up into our bee observation area and see how beekeepers work through colonies and view a queen bee, worker, drone, honey, pollen, wax, and more! Afterwards (or before!) enjoy a free honey tasting at the BeeGoods Honey Bar.

Please RSVP (Interested or Going) so we may gauge interest for any given day and BEE prepared. Thank you!

Please note that hive tours are weather dependent. Feel free to contact us to confirm during bad weather. We do try to post if we need to make a schedule change due to weather as well!

Queen Catching Demo

Queen Catching

Join us to watch one of BeeWeaver's queen catchers at work. Our mini queen yard (aptly named 'Ana Rosa's Queen Garden') is next to our BeeGoods Mercantile. You will be able to see how we arrange our queen nucs, look for and catch queens, clip/mark queens, and cage them. Afterwards each nuc will receive a new queen cell and a shot of feed.

Please note this is a live hive event. While queen nucs are small, gentle colonies there is still a chance of stings. Please bring your own veil or plan on buying one at our store that morning if you feel you must protect against this risk.

This event is weather dependent. In the chance of rain it will be postponed or cancelled.
