You are in for an extra-sweet treat with this workshop! Our beloved, third-generation beekeeper tends many hives here at White Oak Pastures. We are so proud of him, our hard-working pollinators, and the award-winning honey they produce!
Spend a day at our farm learning beekeeping basics, touring our farm in Bluffton, and learning how we do what we do here. A memorable afternoon with Luis will provide insights into honey harvesting and the delicate craft of keeping bees without chemical inputs or aids. There will be classroom time as well as interactive time at the hives. You will not want to miss this exceptional, informative experience! Whether you have bees already, want bees, or simply care about our fragile pollinator populations: this workshop will be a day well spent!
