Event Overview

Learn about the intriguing 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 include suiting up in protective gear, lighting a bee smoker, and getting up close with more than 100,000 bees. Each tour is capped at 8 people, providing you an intimate experience of this fascinating species.

You will walk away with a better understanding of the importance of honey bees and why their survival is so important, and see firsthand why bees aren’t near as scary as many of us think! Watch honey bees at work creating honey, witness as new bees are ‘born’, and learn more about what you can do to help the health and survival of this vital species. All tours will include a digital print of your hive tour experience! Tours include a tasting of honey fresh from the hive.

Tara Chapman is a native Texan, born and raised in the small West Texas town of Smyer. She moved to the East Coast for college in 1999. After 13 years, she raced back to Texas to satisfy a longing for Texas BBQ, breakfast tacos, and mild winters. Tara’s fascination with bees began with an 8th grade science unit on the workings of a colony. Tara’s favorite way to eat honey is on top of a banana with a bit of cinnamon and peanut butter!

Tara does hive tours, beekeeping classes, and the HoneyHomes program to help others discover the fulfilling hobby of beekeeping. A chance lecture on solitary bees inspired her BeeBuilders kit, intended to teach our community about the importance of solitary bees.
