The tour includes a 20-minute film about bees & beekeeping. This film was produced by the National Honey Board for viewers of all ages. It is informative and fun. After the film we do a honey & food pairing. At this time we will also offer you the chance to taste up to 25 of our Marshall's Farm varietal honeys and wildflower honeys. If you plan to have snacks or lunch at the farm, save some room for these sweet honey treats. We will have a look into a real beehive. Our beekeeper will open the hive, show you a frame of bees & hopefully find the queen bee so you can meet her. He will pull a frame of honey from the hive so that you can experience tasting honey right out of that beehive. A demonstration of honey extracting and bottling will follow.
After the tour, you will have an opportunity to have us bottle honey for you to purchase, to shop in our little country store or to have us make up a special gift basket for you.
TOUR ON YOUR OWN ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.
