Very little to see here, only one small hive and very little in their shop. Certainly not worth going out of your way for a visit.

Watch bees working. Learn more about bees and the honey making process via dvd. Taste test honey before picking a bottle of your favorite local honey. Happy and knowledgeable staff.

We always go by this place once a year and stock up for us as well as family and friends. Love to see these small businesses surviving.

Free entry and really enjoyed the free tasting of many different varieties of honey. It is better value to bring your own container if you are buying honey than one of their pre-packaged ones. Affordable refreshments and great scones.
