The Beehive tour welcomes all foodies, gardeners, adventurers, future beekeepers and anyone who is curious to experience the wonderful world of bees. We’ll start out with a brief introduction to beekeeping before suiting up in protective gear for a hands-on apiary (where the bees are kept) tour where you will see the inner workings of the hives. You will light a bee smoker to help calm the 100,000+ bees buzzing around. Once we are in the apiary, you will notice how the honey bees are docile and focused on working on their daily tasks to keep their colony thriving. You will be able to feed the bees some honey for an up close look at their adorable anatomy. By the end of the tour, you will have a better understanding of beekeeping as well as how honey is made by these tiny yet powerful creatures that work so hard to sweeten our lives and so much more. Please note that this experience is weather dependent. If it rains or if it’s cooler than 75 degrees, we will have to reschedule.

Five honey bee swarms found their home in my olive trees and I realized they needed my help. I learned all about these industrious little animals with insane skills which amazed me and I fell in love. I call them my Olivewood Bees. I am a passionate beekeeper and an ambassador for the honey bee. I come from over a decade of representing some of the most well known brands and websites. Now it’s an honor to represent these incredible little creatures that do so much for us.

At our home located in bee-utiful La Tuna Canyon, right above Burbank. After the tour, guests have an incredible opportunity to visit my neighbor, the Theodore Payne Foundation of California Native plants. There is a wildflower hike accessible for all ages as well as a great walk around the 22 acres with beautiful plants for viewing and for sale. It’s a perfect match to understanding how important native plants are for pollinators!
Please wear loose full length jeans or khakis that cover your ankles and closed toe shoes. Avoid all perfumes, scented creams and shampoos that can spark the interest of the honey bees wanting to pollinate you.
