Tour a working apiary at our honey ranch just a few miles east of Austin, TX! Our hive tours will let you learn about the world of honey bees in a way that few get to experience, through the hands-on exploration of an active, living beehive.
Your tour, led by a professional beekeeper, will begin with a brief lecture on the lives of bees, after which you’ll suit up in protective gear, light a bee smoker, and get up close and personal with more than 100,000 bees. Our public tours are perfect for a weekend date or an adventure with friends!
Interested in a more intimate experience with your team or group? Schedule your own private hive tour, where you can customize your experience with a sommelier-style honey sensory class.
