Wat je gaat doen

To begin our experience we require everyone to sign a liability waiver since this is a honey bee sanctuary. We will go over bee yard etiquette and get dressed in protective bee yard attire. We will take a stroll to the honey bee sanctuary and see bees pollinating the Tulsi basil flowers and others along the way. When we get to the apiary, we will learn how to light a smoker and begin a hive inspection demonstration. During this time we will identify honey, pollen, nectar, eggs, brood, queen bee, worker bees, drone bees, pests and much more. We will also closely examine bee biology and the ecology in the hive body. Depending on the season we may even be fortunate to catch a swarm, harvest honey, or make a split if it is needed. Hive tutorials can be customized to focus on certain aspects of beekeeping such as split making, in-depth pest management, correcting cross comb, ect. if needed. We will conclude our hive time together by walking the tools and buckets up to the processing kitchen. There we will honey to sample as well!!
Other things to note:
Inform us of any allergies you may have to bees or pollen before arriving on our property. A liability waiver must be signed before leaving our carport area since bees are abundant on our property.

I have offered beekeeping classes and workshops on the Big Island for ten years. I specialize in treatment-free hygienic beekeeping. My partner & co-host, John Lair and I offer honey bees, natural-cell queens, top bar hives, and pure hive products. I teach an 8 class course at the University of Hawaii~ Hilo which covers bee biology, hive ecology, hygienic hive management and much more. John and I co-teach two apiary days as part of this course. We love to teach together and share our passion for bees and their creations with others.

I had so much fun learning how to care for bees with Jen. They are truly fascinating creatures and need to be cared for for our ecosystem to thrive. I wish it was longer than an hour. I probably could have stayed there all day.

Wow- what a fantastic experience! This is a unique opportunity to see beekeeping up close, including some hand-on experience. Jen is incredibly knowledgeable, and she was able to answer all of our questions while also demonstrating beekeeping. It was really cool to see everything up close and it is a beautiful farm setting. We learned so much and we loved the honey samples too. Totally recommend.

Jen accommodated our schedule while visiting the island. Her knowledge of bee keeping is many years deep and the information she gives is a reflection of her experience with many hives and various bees. It’s apparent Jen still has passion for bees and their impact on the environment. If you’re at all interested in what bee keeping is like this tour is worth an hour of your time.
