Apa yang akan anda lakukan

Bookings to Visit the Queen are now closed for the 2021 season due to unpredictable weather. Please check our re-opening schedule beginning May 2022.

We will start off talking about some of the history of Honey Bees, the different types of bees (queens, workers, drones) that we will see in the hive, the bee life-cycle, inner beehive activities, beehive equipment and more. We will then put on bee suits and visit a working beehive to see the bees in real life. Inside the hive we will find the queen and look for eggs, larva and pupa. We might even see a queen laying an egg. When finished at the hive, we will return to the house and answer any other questions about bees.
Note:
- Honey Bees are very sensitive to cold temperatures. In the unlikely event that outside temperatures drop to less than +5 deg C, the experience will be cancelled with full refunds.
Other things to note
Guests should be aware that there will be a high number of bees flying about once the hive is opened. This can be very intimidating to some people.

Special Experience dates and times can be arranged, please send me a message with your preferred date/time.

I have been a Honey Bee Beekeeper in the Calgary area for over 11 years. I host beekeeper learning sessions for members of our local Beekeeper's Club and mentor new beekeepers. Honeybees are one of the major pollinators of the world and help pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat. I am very passionate about maintaining/increasing the health and population of our honey bees. I enjoy sharing my beekeeping experience and hope to provide people with an exciting and memorable experience as well as a better understanding about bees - maybe the knowledge will encourage you to become a beekeeper.

Roy's knowledge and passion for bees is infectious! Sharon and Roy were gracious hosts and provided a wonderful unique experience. Would absolutely recommend!!

Roy's stories of the bee life are quite amazing, from how the queen is chosen, to how the male bees are kicked out to die after their work is done. You can almost hear the bee's thoughts as Roy "translated" them into human language, often humorous and amusing. Roy and Sharon made sure we wore our gear correctly, so that we didn't have to swish away the buzzing, curious bees. Great experience all throughout: we saw how bees kept honey, pollen, and their babies in the cells, with the big bonus of us finding the Queen! Well recommended for everyone school-aged to 90s.

My girlfriend and I had a great time here. Roy is a great storyteller and it was pretty interesting to learn about the bees and their process.

My teenage boys and their teenage cousins had a wonderful time! I wasn’t able to go with them at the list minute and wasn’t sure what they would make of it but they returned just raving about their experience and excitedly sharing all of the new things they learned and saw. Roy, thank you so much for wonderful afternoon and for the special treats at the end! They all said how much you remind them of my favourite uncle, which is high praise. And thank you for sharing your passion with the kiddos and for making learning so exciting for them! Highly recommend!

My children & I thought this was a very good experience at a beautiful location, much closer to Calgary than I had first thought. Roy & Sharon were extremely accommodating & hospitable. They obviously have a wealth of experience. Roy was interesting to listen to & very informative. When were suited up & Roy took us to the hives, it was fascinating. I would highly recommend this experience.
