Bee Keeper for a Day! Our elegant Killer Bees Honey one-of-a-kind experience is about sustainable bio-diversity and the vital role bees play.

Sean is one of 4 Americans to be certified with the Italian Registry of Honey Sensory Experts at the CNR Research Institute in Bologna, Italy; he is essentially a honey sommelier! Our honey is tested by Texas A&M and Intertek in Germany for purity of floral source & for all toxins including glyphosate. Our honey tests 100% TOXIN & GLYPHOSATE ("Round-Up") FREE. The purity and intensity of our honey is unsurpassed and unlike any honey you have tasted previously.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Located deep in the Pisgah National Forest of Western North Carolina, the Killer Bees Honey apiary is nestled high on Walnut Cove Mountain. Surrounded by 512,000 farm and pesticide-free acres of soul-cleansing views, our lady aviators gather nectar from a variety of floral sources. The end result is honey as pure and natural as the forest from which it is derived. This tour is not only unique to the area but also unique in the country

This was a rare experience and a curiously exciting insight into the world of honeybees and the different varieties of honey they produce. Sean and Denise are world class experts on the care of their working hives and are so passionate about their craft they want to share it with as many people as possible. This tour is worth every penny so if you’re thinking it’s too expensive, think again. My husband and I absolutely loved it!

I surprised my husband (who has considered beekeeping) with this tour and didn't really know what to expect. It was well worth it! It felt like a full day by the end for the 4 hours. Sean, Jen, and Denise were all incredibly knowledgeable -- the first part of the "tour" was simply learning about bees, queen bees, hives, bees as a social organism, etc --and as opposed to being dry and boring, this was actually fascinating and one of my favorite parts of the tour. We suited up and went out to see the bees, went through the honey tasting (which was lovely!), bottled our own honey, and were able to purchase and help support at the end. We learned a TON about what goes into ethical beekeeping, how what Killer Bees Honey does really sets a standard (not only in the US, but also in the EU, where they have more stringent regulations), and about how much of the honey in the US is actually cut with other ingredients as opposed to being "pure" honey. I highly recommend! Would love to take other family members.

Very interesting tour to see the workings of high quality organic honey production. The hosts are extremely knowledgeable and made everybody in the party feel at home. The location is at their beautiful home on a 75 acre tract on top of a mountain near Lake Toxaway. The tour started out with a detailed and informative talk about bees and how a hive of bees works together as a tightly integrated super-organism. Then put on protective suits to go out and look look inside of hives producing honey. This was followed with a honey tasting and pairing. There were 14 people of all ages in the group we were in and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. Highly recommend!

What a wonderful and unique experience! We learned so much about the special place of bees in our ecosystem, and the husband and wife conducting the tour of their apiary really took the time to educate us. Seeing the behives up-close and being geared up in actual beekeeping attire was an amazing experience. Of special note is that the experience included GOURMET finger foods paired with honey. Their knowledge and passion for beekeeping was contagious, and they both have a fantastic sense of humor to go along with their extensive and life-long knowledge of beekeeping. It was truly a wonderful experience to see their bees, and an honor to be allowed into their beautiful home. This experience is a must-do!! The food and honey pairing (and champagne!) are really unique, tasty and special.

Super unique and wonderfully interesting experience! Sean and Denise articulately expresses their passion for honeybees and their vital role in the ecosystem and share it with the community in the most amazing way. After an informative session on these harmonious pollinators, we got to handle them ourselves the. Moved on to a honey tasting and pairing that was delicious, can’t express our satisfaction enough!
