Incredible and personal experience with nature. I am allergic to bees but they had the protective suits and the bees are very docile. I was impressed with the learning phase and the hands on phase. The location is incredibly picturesque and the people are very nice and welcoming.

Me and my wife had an amazing experience here! Mark started the tour by educating us on bees, their lifespan, how crucial they are, And how intelligent they are!! This experience is located on a farm with a mini organic fruits and vegetables, cows, turkeys, chickens, horses and much more! He took us up and showed us how the honey was made and processed. He then took us to get suited up and go to the hives to see how the honey was made. When we got to the hives he let me and my wife open the box pull out the slides and see the bees up close and personal and we even found a couple queen bees. He even said he would help us start Our own beehive when we got home if we would like. Everybody on the farm was exceptionally nice and welcoming! I would recommend this once-in-a-lifetime experience to anybody coming to Maui! Thank you again!

The hands on honeybees tour was one of the coolest and most interesting experiences my family has ever had. The property is just beautiful, and we learned how they are biodynamially farming it (which was really cool all on its own!) But the real stars of the show are the bees themselves! My mouth was literally hanging open at times because it’s so fascinating hearing about what an incredible life these little guys lead. Levi and Mark are incredibly knowledgeable and you can feel their passion for the the land, the animals and the bees. Levi lead us through a fun and interesting tour and eagerly answered all our questions. You won’t find a better guide to learn about or experience the art of beekeeping. And, we were able to suit-up and open a hive and see inside their fascinating little world! We were able to remove and hold the racks and even work the smoker. It truly was hands on. It is a once in a lifetime experience, and this beautiful and memorable setting in Maui is just the place to do it.
