Roll down your sleeves and become a beekeeper in the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains! Visit one of the apiaries in Santa Monica Mountains on the private or public property. Then we'll go over the fundamentals of wild plants beekeeping. We’ll start with a brief lesson on the importance of honey bees and their effect on human lives. Then we’ll learn about the different kinds of bees that make up a hive and how to manage thousands of active insects all at once. Next, we'll roll down our sleeves, light up the smoker, and take a detailed peek inside to inspect the health of the colony on all three different types of hives. After our hive inspection, we’ll have the chance to see and sample some of the products that the bees make: bee bread, wax, propolis, bee pollen, drone milk and, of course, a taste of different types of honey.
Water will be provided on the field and tea or coffee will be offered in the shop for honey tasting.
Off road truck will be provided for up to 5 people party, if needed, after the rain.
Protective bee suits will be provided from Small to Extra large sizes. If any special size needed, please, let us know in…
I have gained my beekeeping experience within 32 years in two countries - Ukraine and the USA( Southern California and Montana). I have worked and still working with several different systems of beehives like Dadant-Langstroth, Ozerov's double queen, Ukranian horizontal hives. My main focus is the maintenance of medium size apiaries (up to 50 beehives) in the wild or semi-wild areas where there are mainly native wildflowers and plants(no pesticides and herbicides used) and no chemical treatments on the bees ever. I maintained bees for rich and famous for many years in Malibu and surrounding areas. The bee population is in decline and my passion and goal are to educate the public on the importance of bees and how to start an apiary regardless of where they live and use natural and mechanical (no chemical) treatments on the bees.
