Visit Dickey Bee Honey

ByAnn Evans
We have heard how important honey bees are to promoting a healthy environment. I invite you to join me on a tour of Dickey’s Honey Bee House to learn more about these fascinating pollinators. Our group will have a complete tour of their new honey house visiting all of the different areas that make up this interesting and important venue.

In the museum we will learn about the tools and equipment that have been used and passed on through three previous generations. The extraction of honey in the Extracting room is an amazing sight to watch through a viewing window. In the Packaging Room we will be able to watch the process of making creamed honey or, prepare honey butter, or pour and fill jars from the barrels of extracted honey. We will also gather in the Classroom and be educated on the importance of the honey bee, pollination and our food chain. We will have time to ask any questions we might have. 

There is also opportunity to purchase products made on the premises.

It will certainly be an interesting day and after our visit I am sure we will leave with a renewed sense of the value of the honey and information as to what we all can do to protect and nurture these creatures.
