Afterward, relax and enjoy the fruits of the bees’ labor with an elegant honey tasting that includes multiple honeys selectively paired with an assortment of tapas style hors d’oeuvres to delight the palate. Receive a keepsake jar of delicious local honey to take home – our gift to you.

    I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I enjoyed my tour and tasting. It was an amazing experience. I learned so much and really enjoyed the staff and their warm professionalism. Throughout the event I kept wishing my family was with me and thought of several friends I will encourage to attend. I will definitely go again. Thanks for your work, and for making the tour and tasting such a memorable experience!

    Thanks for much for the amazing tour of bees. It was a day we will long remember and looking forward to sharing it with our friends. Definitely one of the best kept secrets for the Charlotte area. The bee keeper, Joseph was very knowledgeable – gave a fascinating history of the importance of bees. He kept us all siting on the edge of our chairs. The honey tasting was an experience above any I would have expected. Love the way you paired types of honey with cheese. It was a fun experience and full of new ideas. It was FIRST class.

    “We really enjoyed our Hive and Honey Tour experience with Beeyond Bees and can enthusiastically recommend it to others. We learned a lot about the life of bees in an interactive way and felt warmly welcomed by the excellent staff. Perhaps most memorable was the opportunity to taste so many varieties of tasty honey in the tranquil farm setting of Ivy Place. Thank you!”
