Red Bee Apiary's Talk, Tour & Honey Tastings are an opportunity for you to visit a working apiary and experience honey at its source. Take a tour of Red Bee's apiary and gardens, once the home of celebrity ballerina and author Gelsey Kirkland and dancing partner of Mikhail Baryshnikov. Guests will gather at a communal farmhouse-style table in the Honey House Barn to explore and taste single-origin honey. Learn how honeybees make this liquid gold we call honey, how terroir and nectar source determines a honey's color and flavor and how honey is harvested and extracted from the hive. Most importantly – learn how to select quality honeys and identify adulterated and honey fraud in the marketplace. Participants will be encouraged to engage their curiosity through discussions while learning how to identify flavor profiles in honey and their floral sources. Each menu is a carefully orchestrated “Tasting Flight” of five single-origin local honeys and perfectly paired seasonal accompaniments- locally or estate produced. A short honey harvest demo will let you taste fresh honey as it comes untouched by human hands straight from the beehive. A rare and special treat for anyone who adores honey and bees!

All guests who sign up and pay for this event at will receive further event details and travel information.
