Item #2: What’s The Buzz About Bees?

Mike from Summer’s Gold Honey will take your group of 8 on a tour of their state of the art processing and packing facility. You will then load up in vehicles and head out to one of their bee yards where you can check out the hives. During this 2 hour tour you will learn about the fascinating honey making process. You will have an opportunity to do some tasting and take some delicious honey home with you. For most interesting results, this experience is best used around the end of August during the honey harvest.

Bidders should be aware that bee stings are a possibility and Summer’s Gold Honey does not accept liability for injuries during this tour. Bees are agitated by scents and perfumes. Scented deodorants should be avoided on that day. We recommend showering with unscented soap, like ivory, prior to your visit.

When choosing your date, please consult the weather channel. Bright, full sun, days are by far the best for handling bees. Wear light colours (preferably white) as most predators of bees (bears and skunks) are dark in colour.

The experience diminishes beyond Sept 15 as the honey harvest itself will be complete. By Sept 30, the beeyard visit will not be part of the experience.

This is a federally registered food processing facility. You will be issued appropriate food handling apparel in plant as well as appropriate personal protective equipment in the beeyard.

We feel that this experience will be educational, interesting and engaging. We look forward to sharing our passion with you.
