Çfarë do të bësh

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 was incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable. We forgot tall socks and closed-toed shoes, but she had some extras on hand for us! She was patient with us and ensured our safety throughout the experience. She made us feel very prepared to handle the frames. It wasn't just fun, she taught us so much about bees and beekeeping as well! Thank goodness for the mesh suits. When the breeze came through, it actually felt great and wasn't terribly hot. The honey tasting at the end was amazing! Lauren did a great job keeping us all safe and explaining each of the honeys. It felt like a wine tasting! She did this experience with us on her birthday, which I think shows a lot of dedication and passion for what she does. She could have spent her time in a million other ways, but she chose to hang out with us. We would highly recommend this experience!!

Absolutely wonderful! I would give it 10 stars if I could!! What a unique experience and wonderful day! I learned SO much and had SO much fun! Lauren is super funny and Sweet and interesting ! And best of all She is able to talk about bees in a simple and relatable way that anyone can understand and that really sticks in your memory! I knew bees were super important but I never knew their lives were so exciting! I felt so comfortable and safe around the bees because of all the precautions Lauren takes and how diligent she is about safety and teaching us about bee safety and what to expect. The place is also super adorable and instagramable, I wish I could live there! There are 2 large beautiful pergolas to provide shade and a cool yurt & they are stocked water and la croix and Perrie and fun flavored seltzers! I thought that 2 hours wouldn’t feel like long enough but so much was packed into that time that I really left feeling like an expert! It was also a diverse and inclusive airbnb experience! All ages, races, and sexual orientations were represented and welcome! 10/10 would highly recommend!

This was a surprise experience for my daughter’s 30th birthday, who has had a fascination with honey bees since childhood. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the experience. It was even more educational than I expected, yet very comfortable. Lauren is a wonderful, thoughtful host. I would recommend this experience to anyone without a bee allergy and I would certainly enjoy it a second time around!!

Lauren has a real passion and knowledge for the history of and the raising of these bees. This was my first time trying beekeeping and I felt like I learned a great deal, got really up close and personal with the critters, and both Lauren and her equipment helped me feel totally safe all the while. I totally recommend this experience if you have a few hours in the morning or afternoon to fill. And if you have more time afterwards, there's some great food spots, historical vibes, and a few sights nearby, in Berlin, MD, just about 15-20 minutes away.

Lauren is not only knowledgeable, she is a great story teller as well. She took the extra time to answer all our questions. She actually took our pictures. She is very much into caring for the bees than she is for making $$. She let us hold the trays so we could get comfortable with being so close to the bees. The honey tasting was phenomenal. This is a must do tour when in Ocean City!!
