Hive Tours

Have you ever wondered what it looks like inside a beehive? Maybe you have considered becoming a beekeeper, but you’re not sure where to begin? Indigo Acres Apiary has programming geared for all. Explore our Educational Sessions and discover which experience is right for you!

Our Hive Tour allows you to suit up, in the safety of our provided bee suits, and enjoy the humming of thousands of honeybees, up close and personal. While exploring the inside of a hive, you will learn about the hive components, as well as the life of the honeybee colony.

Let’s Bee Inspired!

Once you purchase a Hive Tour, our beekeeper will contact you to schedule a session. A completed liability waiver will be required, before the session begins. This waiver will be e-mailed to you, as well as additional information to prepare you for the experience.

Your Hive Tour will include:

  • Introduction to Beekeeping
  • A Hands-on Hive Inspection, with the Beekeeper
  • A Photo Opportunity
  • Question/Answer session
  • A Beginning Beekeeper Equipment List
  • A Recommended Resource List
  • A Pollinator Friendly Plant List
  • Bottled Water

We believe that one-on-one or small group instruction (2-6 individuals) is most beneficial for learning. Children are welcome, age 8+, unless other arrangements have been made with the beekeeper. Each session will last approximately 1.5 – 2 hours.

  • $40.00/adult
  • $20.00/child (ages 8-17)

Cancellation Policy: NO REFUNDS will be given on Hive Tours.  You may transfer your registration for a Hive Tour, to another session, of equal value, UP TO ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE of the scheduled event. 

If you cancel your scheduled event LESS THAN ONE WEEK prior to your scheduled date, Indigo Acres Apiary will make every attempt to reschedule you/your group to another session, based on availability.  This is NOT a guarantee.   Please keep in mind, last minute cancellations are challenging for the bees and the beekeeper. 

Indigo Acres Apiary has the right to cancel any event due to illness or inclement weather.  Hive tours cannot be held in the rain.  Rain = cranky bees!  If your tour is canceled, by the beekeeper, you will be transferred to another tour.
