HONEY SENSORY TASTINGS
Stimulate your senses.
Our beekeeper will guide you through the tastes, textures, smells and flavors of 5 different honeys paired with cheeses, nuts, and other accompaniments.
A journey from flower to honey.
With each honey course, you’ll gain an appreciation for bee’s honey-making process, different floral sources and the resulting honeys.
We'll come to you!
At your location or ours, we will use honey as our guide to strengthen your senses and palate as you identify a rainbow of colors and flavors and learn how to better pair honeys with different foods.
Our tastings are perfect for team building, date night or an adventure with friends!
