Neler yapacaksınız

We will meet at one of my bee yards in a screened tent near the bee hives (see photos). We begin with a quick overview of pollinators in general and different kinds of beekeeping. Then a discussion on honey bee biology.

After that we suit up (bee jackets and gloves) to go into one or two hives to show you colony organization. We will look for the queen and identify workers and drones and talk about their roles in the colony.

Back at the tent, we will have snacks and drinks made with honey, honey tastings, and finish up with a short discussion about honey and bees wax processing, and address any questions you may have.

Interaction is at your comfort level. I can show you how to gently remove and hold frame during inspection and what we are looking for in a healthy colony. If anyone in your group does not want to go to the hives they can stay in the tent for that portion of the experience.

Important to note:
We need good weather for this experience. Here in South Florida, we may not know until the morning of event if weather will cause us to cancel. This has happened to me several times.
Also, if you can be flexible with our start time, for example if we've had a cold night and it's slow to warm up, our start time may need to get pushed out by an hour or so.

I began beekeeping in March of 2010 with 3 hives. I am a holistic beekeeper and now have 3 bee yards and around 45 bee hives. Pursuing to know more about honey bees, I have been to University of Florida bee college twice, along with attending meetings to hear PhD entomologists, master beekeepers, and people who have a lifetime of experience with beekeeping. I have read dozens of books and articles and watched more videos than I can count.

Great as all that has been, the real teachers are the bees themselves. I have not stopped learning, never gotten bored or have wanted to quit. It's all just too fascinating.

I have experience with speaking and teaching, including many events with 4H, a garden group, homeschool groups, environmental events, and farmer's markets including a local university.

I invite you, come meet the bees.

We meet at one of my bee yards at a beautifully landscaped working farm that is also home to wedding venues and other outdoor community events. The area is Old Florida at it's best, in the Buckingham community of Fort Myers.

Bee keeping with Beverly was a terrific, fact-filled, mind blowing presentation, and we're hooked. I arrived with two folks better versed in beekeeping, and Beverly was able to teach me the basics while expanding my groups' knowledge. Bees are just the most magnificent creatures, and Beverly clearly cares about them and about the world of beekeeping, and it was terrific to witness. All that with some delicious samples to boot. We never felt unsafe with the bees, had ample space and protection, the time breezed by and we look forward to going back and learning more.

This experience exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful morning learning about bees, trying yummy treats made with honey (Beverly’s kombucha was the best I’ve had) and generally enjoying the company of others. Beverly has a calming sweet spirit about her that would put anyone at ease.

We were so excited for this experience to begin with. But Beverly made it absolutely amazing. We learned so much, tasted delicious honey treats and best of all were right up close and in the bee hive boxes. Must do if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a beekeeper.

What a wonderful experience we had at Beverly's "Honey Dipping with the Bees". We received a very warm welcome at the gate, an incredibly informative and educational introduction to the world of bee keeping, and a hands-on experience with checking the hives. We learned a lot! The protective clothing supplied was perfect (no bee stings nor even a worry that we might get stung). Beverly wove very interesting details and personal observations into her presentation; she clearly has a love for this hobby and enjoys sharing her knowledge with guests. She capped off the two hour visit with a tasty sampling of honey-based products and a take-home gift-bag with a number of additional bee / honey / beeswax products inside. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience and hope to brings friends with us for a return visit at some point in the near future.

Beverly was delightful and informative. She obviously put in a great deal of effort to make sure we had a wonderful time, and the honey based treats were the best! Best of all, we made a new friend and got some great ideas for our daughter and son-in-law's food business. Perfect!!

our time with Beverly was really great! while I have some bee keeping experience, my family didnt have any prior knowledge or interest and we all really enjoyed it! Beverly is really down to earth and has a lot of great knowledge. she does a great job teaching about the process and also sharing some of the delicious options you can make with honey. I would highly recommend this for a quiet peaceful break from the busy coast if you're vacationing in the area, or if you're just curious about bee keeping in general, beverly would be a great introduction for you!
