We have been hosting lots of visitors out to our kitchen and apiary this summer! July has been a perfect time to introduce people to the bees, since the nectar is flowing and the bees are fat, happy, and busy.
Some of our biggest retailers, New Seasons and Whole Foods Markets, have both sent groups of staff out for team-building experiences. The groups checked out our kitchen operation and took a tour of our facility, did a honey tasting with our collection of different types of honey, and got questions answered about honeybees and beekeeping. From the kitchen, we carpooled out to our apiary in Troutdale, Oregon and the teams got the opportunity to don a beesuit, and get a look at a honeybee hive up close. Everyone had a great time!
Here’s some photos of the fabulous New Seasons Wellness staff:

We look forward to a few more tours coming up this summer!
