Tours Old

Join our beekeeper for a free, fun and educational exploration about bees, beekeeping, and honey, where from behind a safe, screened viewing area, you can view an open beehive demonstration with our bees.

Explore actual hives and learn where the queen resides, how the hive is organized, and what makes bees so special and interesting.

Afterward, visit our museum to view tools, pictures, and displays to learn about the history of beekeeping and honey production. And, enjoy free sampling of our delicious, raw, single-floral, organic honeys while you explore.


Tours available Monday–Friday at 10 am and 1 pm (weather permitting). The museum is open each weekday 10 am to 4 pm.
