Au programme

Your 1.5+ hour interactive experience with a bee colony will begin with an overview of the life of a bee and the different jobs a bee does as they mature. Learn the parts of the hive.
You’ll see an empty hive and learn how to hold a frame (without squishing the bees -they don’t like that).

We’ll observe a hive (from a distance), and get suited up. Light a smoker. Do a safety check, and then approach the hive.

At the hive you’ll see and feel the power of propolis (a supplement for people as well as) -- its the glue bees use to seal up the hive.

We’ll lift the lid and go inside.
For some, that’s might be as far as they want to go. But, if you want to see more, we will do a complete hive inspection. Pull each of the frames to see how the bees create honey and keep the colony alive.

You’ll see open “wet cells” of nectar that are still in the process of transforming into honey. You’ll see capped honey (ready for harvest), tiny freshly laid eggs and all the stages of bee development ( larvae, caped brood, and newly emerging “baby bees”).

I’ll show you how beekeepers help control pests (other insects and diseases) and keep the bees healthy so they can do their important work.

You’ll hold frames of bees and feel the weight of a full frame of honey when compared to a frame of bees.

There’s always time for selfies!

You’ll sample honey and enjoy a cold beverage

Bee a Keeper.

I love bees.
I love to try to help them love me back.
As a backyard beekeeper it’s always exciting to interact with each colony and observe behavioral differences. Every day I learn from these amazing creatures.

I'm also a full time educator (and a registered beekeeper with the State of Florida Agriculture Department).
- are you ready to learn more about bees?
Let’s enjoy a unique exBEErience as we all BEEcome keepers.

Le lieu

Backyard beekeeping is becoming a big thing. Bees in urban settings are exposed to less pesticides and a wide variety of food sources. Working next to the chickens, we will be in the backyard apiary.

Experience times are flexible. Dates are also flexible. Each experience is limited to 6 guests. Everyone gets up close.

If you have a larger party - we can discuss some workable options.

-->Please note: it can get VERY HOT in the summer time

This was the most incredible experience! It was the perfect combination of informative, entertaining, interactive, and delicious! David provided wonderful safety measures for both beekeeping in general and concerning the pandemic, and even went so far as to take photos with a professional camera and make honey-infused cocktails. Highly recommend!

This experience was so much fun. I am from St Pete and I was looking for something fun to do this weekend. I have always been intrigued by bees/beekeeping so I decided to give this experience a go. David was extremely friendly and informative. He made sure everyone felt safe and was safe when we suited up to see the bees. He made great cocktails after we saw the bees as well as taste testing some honey! Thank you for an experience that I will not forget!! :)

We absolutely loved this experience. Getting this close to the bees is an unforgettable experience. First in theory, then in real and at the end tasting different kinds of honey. David is very knowledgeable and welcoming. We will definitely recommend this experience and his honey to others! Thank you, David!

AMAZINGLY entertaining adult field trip! Within moments of registering - I received an email with valuable information preparing for my visit. Upon arrival - I was promptly greeted & welcomed. This was a highly educational, fun, proactively safe & COVID conscious environment. David has an incredibly personable presence that makes the time fly by. I was lucky enough to purchase several bottles to gift as souvenirs. David makes an incredible Sunset Bay Honey Margarita. (Don’t forget to tip the wait staff!). I will send anyone I know here for a visit!
