DETAILS: This is a fun opportunity to get to inspect a busy beehive!

First, we’ll suit up in protective gear. Then we’ll head to the Apiary where you'll learn about the art of beekeeping & the various tools used. Now it's time to inspect a hive. Hold a frame covered with 100's of bees ... a great photo opp! Press your finger into the comb and taste the freshest honey ever!

When all done it's now time to be a "Chef" and do a honey & food pairing. This is such a sweet experience for all :)

I'm a native Californian who loves teaching backyard beekeeping at the The PurrFect Honey Apiary. I love giving talks on "Beekeeping Like a Girl" and "Pretty Pollinator Gardens." My popular classes include “Be A Beekeeper” and "Make Mead With a Beekeeper"... two very fun (in-person) Airbnb Experiences!

Last year I started the bee non-profit (501c3) https://purrfecthoney.com. Our goal is to "bee happy" and promote beekeeping around the world. We must save our bees! Our new YouTube channel is now live regarding fun bee facts: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQJGaC-UIvyXn1inczjfkqA

BOOKING TIP: want to schedule a fun work team off-sight, family and/or friends adventure? Just send an inquiry with your request. Special weekday times are available for groups (8-15 people) during March-October.

The PurrFect Honey Apiary is located in a private and pollinator-friendly garden, nestled in the hub of Silicon Valley. Our tranquil backyard is an ideal launch pad for our bees to get out and pollinate our surrounding parks and gardens.

Dr. Ali was SO informative and engaging. I took my husband here for his birthday and he loved it. Any fear of bees will be diminished after you do this experience! The food pairing portion was definitely a highlight! Do not hesitate to book!

We had a great time with Ali + Hobbes! We had a private group of 6 friends who wanted to come and learn about local beekeeping. It was great to meet Hobbes and the ladies and more about bees!

Such an unexpected surprise! A very intimate and educational experience and worth every penny. We loved bees before but now I REALLY love them.

Very informative, educational, hands on and well thought out beekeeping experience. We had a party of eight with four kids between the ages of 4-7. Dr. Ali was a wealth of information, moved us along each segment of the visit while staying cognizant of when the kids were getting restless or if they seemed to be a little timid around the bees. She was great with the kids and our kids all had a great time. We all left the experience feeling a little less timid around bees and armed with more information about honeybees. Recommend this experience for a unique experience to learn about beekeeping, see bees at work up close, and the food pairing tasting!

Such a unique and creative experience! I learned so much about bees and how they fit into our entire environment and why we should be thankful to have them around
