What you'll do

Your experience includes the following. - Upon your arrival at 3 Acres we will give you a short description and then suit you up in a bee suit. - Steve will then take you out to our apiary which is a skip and a hop away across the road. - You will have a hands on, educational experience with the bees, ask all the questions you've ever wanted to know about bees, honey etc... - Once we've closed up the hives we will move towards the honey house and we will show you the extraction room and the mead making facility. - Back to where we started from, and you'll be given samples of the different kinds of honey (see who can guess which honey is from which harvest, spring summer or fall) and mead tasting. - As an appreciation for your visit, you will leave with a jar of freshly extracted honey. ***Nous offrons cette expérience en français aussi!

We've had our beekeeping operation since 1990, and in 1995 decided to move out to the country to raise our family and make a living out of beekeeping. As well as being passionate about raising bees and harvesting honey, we have developed a wide range of all natural beeswax beauty products and meads. Living in harmony with nature provides us with all the essentials we need. We also have accommodation available right here on Airbnb (Entire house max 4 people , situated 650 meters from this experience). For more info, look for Dunham, Qc "Quiet home with pool & 76 acres of land to roam on".
