“Bad!!!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

First, the owner was rude. The visit began late. There were two part provided by two different person and these two people completely contradicted each other in the way bees proceed to make honey, who was right? The first part was interesting but short. The second part was totally focused on selling. This second person did not mention anything about the process to make honey or other information about bees, he just wanted to sell products. This second person was unpleasant and also made fun of the visitors. Will never go again and I will never encourage them by buying there products!

“Buy some honey straight from the source.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Not only you can buy honey from them, but there are plenty of products like honey candies or mead.

Also, you can discover how the honey are extracted. More than that, there is a little animals farm for kids.

“Excellent activity on a Sunday afternoon”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a bee/honey producer. They give a guided tour and show you the bee hives and explain how the honey is made...pretty cool. They also have a nice boutique/gift shop where you can buy their products all made of honey. I recommend this activity...it is original.

“Excellent tour, shop and site”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My boyfriend heard about this place and we had nothing to do on a nice day yesterday so we decided to head over and attend their tour. It sounded rather long to me at 1.5 hours, but if you have any interest at all in bees, or in learning more about why they are in danger, I don't think you could find a better tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable and clearly passionate about bees. He gave us a lot of information without being boring and we were able to see beehives in operation up close and learn about all the different products produced from bees and their hives. We also got to try a couple of their types of honey and do a wine/cider/liqueur tasting of their products. Some folks who missed the whole tour paid the $8 just to do the tasting, which I don't think was an outrageous price.

One caution about the tour, though, is that it was conducted entirely in French, but I don't know if this was just because everyone understood it. The guide seemed bilingual and mentioned they do get English speakers. Also, people brought their kids, but it's so much information; I don't think the tour is great for really young kids, although the site overall has plenty of fun stuff for kids to do including a mini-zoo, with bunnies they can hold and ponies they can pet, and a big swing set, all open to the public.

The little shop also seemed reasonably priced with opportunities to taste all their different types of honeys and alcohols. It was neat to see one of the owners working in the shop, too. It seems like a pretty big business, but you get the sense that it's really family-owned.

I'd definitely recommend the tour to my foodie or nerdy friends. The surrounding area is also beautiful with plenty of opportunities to visit other farms and vineyards.

“Everything you need to know about bees”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is an unsual and very interesting attraction for both adults and children. Learn about the life of a bee and how honey is made, from the experts. There is a huge shop to buy anything and everything made from honey, with a big selection of honey types.
