Ready to step into a big bee suit and discover what all the buzz is about at Killer Bees Honeybee Farm?

The farm’s Bee Tour & Honey Culinary Experience has been honored with Tripadvisor’s 2020 Travelers’ Choice award, marking this remote apiary farm in Lake Toxaway a true destination.

“Get lost in the world of the honeybee for four hours,” said Sean Collinsworth, beekeeper and KBH co-owner. “A lot of people don’t realize the social structure and the complexity of the hive…The cliché ‘busy as a bee’ is actually quite precise.”

Starting May 7, Killer Bees Honeybee Farm’s seasonal tours will resume, with a chance to witness – depending on what the bees are up to that day – a waggle dance or a round dance, or even the queen bee piping to her daughters in the hive.

“It’s fun when we do our tour because there’s always something going on in the bee yard,” says Denise Altay, who is Collinsworth’s wife and KBH co-owner.

Tours incorporate an array of aspects related to beekeeping, from donning a bee suit and having a “meet and greet” with the bees to tasting and bottling the honey that’s produced onsite.

Altay leads the tour’s “culinary experience” that follows the presentation and hands-on part of the immersive tour led by her husband.

“It’s an incredible passion,” Altay says. “The bees themselves, they become a passion.”
