You will learn how bees make honey, the importance of honey bee pollination, various honey bee types, difficulties facing the modern beekeeper, how to inspect a hive, and taste different honey samples! We start with an introductory discussion providing an overview of your experience, then move into bee genetics, how bees make honey, and a description of beekeeping equipment and practices. Then you will put on a full protective bee suit and we will tour our apiary located here at the Honey Depot - YES, we will inspect hives together to search for the Queen!! ( NOTE: It must be a warm day without rain and above 55* F to conduct an apiary tour -- typically from April 1 - October 31. Otherwise we will stay inside! ) Afterwards, you can taste different types of honey from around Kentucky and other parts of the country. Each participant will receive a 1-lb. jar of their favorite honey.
