A cute place with 25 different honeys to taste and complimentary honey wine tasting. We went in April so it was not up and running as normal. I would like to come back in the summer and see everything. Otherwise it's just a store with a hive and samples. Very friendly staff!

My daughter an I visited in mid March. The bee display was similar to what we've seen at museums and kids centres. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and open to questions. It was off-season so they had lots of time for us. The highlight was probably being able to taste-test 20 different varieties of honey. You probably need less... More

Watching the bees in the hive has held fascination for granddaughters for a number of years - age doesn't matter; and then there is the tasting and a purchase of favourites! Well worth a stop on your tour through the Okanagan.

Tempt your taste buds with samples of all the different honey flavors and don't forget to try the jelly. A cornucopia of bee products to take home, including honey Mead wine. A great place for the whole... More
