Beekeeping Camp and Farm Fresh Raw Honey

If you want to grasp a better understanding of farming, spend more time outdoors, follow thru on a project from beginning to end and amaze yourself with a growing sense of self confidence and knowledge than one of our tours may be just the ticket.  As you can see from the photos, our tours were initially developed as a hands on learning experience for our own daughter.  She enjoyed it so much we've decided to open the program others.  Fun, informative, and super cool, you'll love this tour.  You may even decide to come to bee camp!  We are not about stuffy lectures and classroom time...this camp is about doing!  Our camp is full of hands on activities that are safe, fun, and challenging to all who participate.  So join us for a season of beekeeping fun!   

Whether you've taken beekeeping classes and are having trouble moving from classroom learning to hands on reality or are just looking for a season of hands on fun...Our Salt Air Farm Tour or  Bee Camp is there for you.
