LAKE TOXAWAY — Nestled in the middle of a pristine mountain forest is a tour experience like no other — the Killer Bees Honey Bee Farm & Honey Tasting Tour.

During the guided 4-hour tour, learn why honeybees are the heartbeat of a healthy environment and the lifeblood of our food supply. Bee experts discuss the intensity of a hive, the power of the Queen, and the fierce loyalty of her female subjects.

Then, attendees don traditional bee suits, covered head to toe, to participate in a guided “meet and greet” with the bees. Guests go into the bee yard with the beekeeper to inspect a hive, hold a bee frame full of bees, and experience the thrill of a Queen sighting.

After the hive viewing, guests indulge in a honey tasting from the Killer Bees apiary, paired with light foods and champagne.

The sessions are lively and fun, with facts about the hive and Killer Bees Honey’s purity and monofloral uniqueness. The tour scored Tripadvisor’s 2020 Travelers’ Choice award.

KBH tours are offered Fridays and Saturdays, May through August. Cost is $110 per person. COVID precautions are observed. For ages 12 and up.
