This experience will take you on a hike to a honey bee yard situated on the private estate of Saddlerock Ranch. Guests will hike through our vineyards and orchards becoming aquatinted with the seasonally flowering plants and discussing environmental challenges of raising healthy bees along the way. Once at the bee yard, guests will be provided with a bee suit, gloves and other essential beekeeping tools. Our beekeeper will then guide guests through a typical hive maintenance inspection and explain the inner workings of the queen and her colony. Guests will then be treated to a sampling of local honey from different local nectar varieties and discuss their unique colors, textures and tasting notes. 

(Please note it is mandatory that guests wear pants and closed toed shoes.)
