Join us in "Our Yard" for the full beekeeper experience. If you live in Nova Scotia, or visiting from away, the opening of a beehive amidst hundreds of thousands of active bees will be a memorable experience. The tour starts in the "shop" with a quick introduction to the importance of Bees and other pollinators to our food chain. Then we light the smoker and put on veils and gloves and head out into the yard where you'll get up close and personal with a working beehive.We will search for the Queen, watch the workers do their Waggle Dance and watch the Drones and learn of each of their roles. Honeybees are generally gentle who keep the noses in their own buzziness, so we encourage you to get close and even grab a selfie with the Queenbee herself! When will you get that close to royality again?
