Hive Tours

Have you ever wondered what it looks like inside a beehive? Maybe you are looking for a fun educational experience for the whole family? 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 honey bees, up close and personal, in our beautiful pollinator garden. While exploring the inside of a hive, you will learn about the exciting life of the honey bee colony, while surrounded by bees and blooms.

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.

“Indigo Acres Apiary is a blessing not only to you, but to whomever visits. I was there a week ago today and I’ve never experienced such a beautiful and informative day. I felt like I was sitting in the Garden of Eden with all the gorgeous flowers you have planted for your bees. It was a wondrous day! Thank you for quitting your day job to follow your passion and to share your expertise. Your honey is absolutely the BEST!” ~Sandy Angel

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.
