Det skal I lave

Enter into one of our private backyard apiaries and experience what it's like to take care of bees in this unique setting. After an intro to bees and beekeeping, we'll put on full beekeeping suits (covered head to ankle) and dive into the hives. Learn to identify the queen and see what a beekeeper looks for to make sure the hive is healthy and strong. After working a few hives, we'll end with a honey tasting where you'll get to compare the flavor profiles of different neighborhood-specific honeys we produce. They really do taste different! Leave with your own taster of this unique and complex honey.

A backyard beekeeper for over a decade, I manage 150 hives in Seattle and King County and rear hearty Pacific Northwest queen bees. I teach others how to keep bees through our bee business, local schools, and the Puget Sound Beekeepers Association. I founded Rainy Day Bees in 2014, when my wife and I began selling delicious neighborhood honey at farmer's markets. I am passionate about keeping and developing healthy bees, and I'm excited to introduce you to the joy and thrill of being inside a bee hive.

I also love introducing people to the idea that honey has flavor and can be a delicious food. Good honey isn't just a boring, syrupy sweetener! In the last few years, I've also branched out to begin selling beeswax candles.

Her skal du være

We will meet and tend the bees in our private backyard apiary, where the bees live and forage on the backyard feast that our neighborhood provides. In addition to the bees, you'll get to see our honey house (beekeeping facility), and talk about planting for bees during a quick tour through our backyard greenhouse.

Peter is incredibly knowledgeable about bees and was able to answer all of our questions. The activity was up close to the hives which allowed us to see the bees in action. I would recommend this event as a great educational experience.

This was a fun experience. We learned a bit about bees and beekeeping, and got to have a little taste of the honey. Peter seems passionate about his profession and we enjoyed learning from him.

Peter showed us around his hives and answered all of our silly questions. He offered kind advice to the other guests that were starting out their own hives. Fun weekend adventure for locals or tourists looking to feel at home.

My boyfriend and I were very excited to spend a day with the bees and Peter’s experience definitely delivered! We had a great time learning about the beekeeping process and putting on the actual suits was so cool! We felt safe the whole time and ending by tasting delicious honey straight from the comb was a cherry on top of a great experience!

This experience was infinitely better than anything you can learn about honey or bees on the internet. Whether you’re interested in beekeeping, local food or the natural world, this experience will give you a greater appreciation for all of it! Peter and Amy Beth were fun, knowledgeable and kind. It was a great way to spent an afternoon and support local beekeepers! PLUS Rainy Day Bees’ ultra local honey is ridiculously delicious. Ridiculous.

This was an amazing experience! We learned so much about beekeeping, bees and honey production. I was a little nervous to be stung, but felt completely safe in the beekeeping suits and with Peter calming the bees. Loved the comb inspection and honey tasting at the end! Peter and Amy Beth were amazing hosts and I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone!!!
