What you'll do
This fascinating experience begins at one of our Apiaries, the Morgan Hemlock Home on Air BnB, or our Riverside Apiary. There will be plenty of liquid refreshments served throughout the experience. We will discuss the importance of Honeybees and Native bees and Monarch Butterflies and what you can do at home to help provide food and habitat for all pollinators. This would be done by touring our Pollinator gardens on premise and through discussion of what native species to plant, and our various projects for bee and butterfly rescues and Morgan Monarch release program. You will then be outfitted with Bee jacket, Gloves, and veil for safety of you and the Bees. We then proceed to the apiary located within a short walk and examine an active colony of Honeybees by letting the guest use the smoker, hive tool, and hold the frames of bees while we search for the elusive Queen, and witness young brood emerge! You will see how bees collect and store nectar and pollen and begin the process of creating honey. We will discuss the importance of Native pollinators like Mason and leaf cutter bees. All guest will go home with a free packet of Wildflower seeds to begin their own pollinator habitat! Agenda may be adjusted due to weather conditions and based on your personal preference. Proceeds from this adventure help us fund rescues, create habit and buy seeds and provide public education.

Lori and I fell in Love with Honeybees over 15 years ago. We have over 12 colonies in our apiaries. We prefer the term, Bee Advocate over Beekeepers, and have given several talks on Bees and Monarch Butterfly’s to Schools, Scouts, Garden Clubs and Chamber of Commerces. Morgans Natural Buzz Honey is our Facebook page where we promote conservation and protection of Honeybees, Monarch butterfly’s, and all pollinators. I’ve been on radio, TV, and guest Podcast concerning Honeybee rescues we have conducted. Most notably, we rescued two bee colonies in Cincinnati and donated them to the Cincinnati Zoo where they now reside. In May of 2019 we removed a large swarm of bees from the Reds game at Great American Ballpark. The National attention raised Bee awareness to millions Nationwide. “All we are saying, is give bees a Chance!”
