Au programme

Learn about the Bees
With our knowledge and experience, we will provide you with initial Do's and Don'ts when working with the bees and their family.

Suit up!
We will provide the necessary Bee Suit's and gloves, please wear appropriate clothing it can get warm in these suits, also no open-toed shoes!

Just getting comfortable
Some of our guests are a little apprehensive, so we take the time to just let you get comfortable being around the Bees.

Light the smoker and jump on in!
This is where we get to see all of the workings of the Colony. We will explain all that is going on and if we are lucky we will spot the queen!

Pictures with your new friends!
We will provide plenty of opportunities for you to get up close and personal with your new family, and selfies are always required!

Revel in the surrealism
Take a moment and be proud of what you have learned, and just how close you have become to one of nature's true miracles.

This unique hands-on experience is the best way to learn about the importance of honeybees! We will suit up and open up the hive to see how bees live, work, and produce honey. You will definitely leave with greater knowledge and understanding of our pollinator friends and the inner workings of a honeybee colony.
ATTN:
If you have a known allergy to bee, wasp, or yellow jacket venom, sadly you are prohibited from participating in this experience.

I am a co-founder of BayBees Honey which is a family-owned and operated apiary on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. We focus on conservation and education while spreading awareness of the importance of preserving our local pollinators in an effort to help save the Bay Bees! Growing up in Upstate NY fostered my love and appreciation for honeybees since childhood. I have maintained my own hives for 6 years, starting with 8 to now over 50. As a beekeeper, I learn more and more every season, not only through Cornells Master Beekeeping & Penn State online courses but mostly from hands-on experience and mentorships from well-versed retired commercial pollinators. I truly believe everyone can and everyone should become a backyard beekeeper! ALL proceeds from tours, classes, rentals, and donations go directly back into the apiary and the bees, 100%!

Lauren is full of knowledge and interesting anecdotes and she easily answered our many questions! Donning our bee suits and looking into each of the hives was exhilarating; while the honey tastings afterwards was relaxing and enjoyable. We were amazed at the distinct flavors of each of the honeys. We learned so much; it was a very worthwhile experience.

We attended the "A Day in the Hive" on one of the last days of the season and Lauren remained very communicative throughout the entire process letting me know if weather may impact our trip. Thankfully the weather held out and we are so thankful it did. Lauren provided such a welcoming, thoughtful, and educational experience. Looking down into the hive and learning how bees communicate and work together while having thousands of buzzing bees happily going about their day was surreal. We never felt in danger and Lauren was awesome about explaining every detail that goes into beekeeping. Handling parts of the hive was awesome, but the trip kept going with samples of honey from around the world coupled with detailed explanations of what environmental factors leads to the honey's taste and viscosity. If you ever wanted to dip you toe in the water of beekeeping don't hesitate to book your experience with Lauren and BayBees. We're still talking about how great of a time we had, and get a sweet reminder each time we use the honey we bought from BayBees. Thank you Lauren for creating a memory for us that will last forever!!!

Even if you are afraid of bees, give this a try. It was incredible. Lauren was very approachable and took lots of cool photos for us to share. The honey tasting was also very fun.

What a cool experience!!! We got to visit with the bees that Lauren had her in backyard and it was magical. She obviously knew a lot about bees and had a deep passion for them. I felt COVID safe during this experience as well which was very important for me. I loved the honey tasting after we got to hang with the bees. I learned a lot about bees and honey! Lauren also just made the whole experience super fun and relaxing. Would do this again without a doubt!

My girlfriend and I booked this to celebrate our one year anniversary, and we had an incredible time! Lauren was so friendly, warm, and down to earth. She was very thorough and professional, and was happy to answer all of our questions. We learned so much about bees and proper bee keeping, and were able to taste a variety of honey. This made for a great date and I can’t recommend this experience enough!
