Join the crew of Beeco - Napa Valley’s most progressive and opinionated beekeepers. We love to share our knowledge and experience, and have fun while we’re doing it! Emily or Rob, our bee experts, will meet you at our prettiest Napa apiary, just minutes from downtown. At the apiary, we will be providing a complete honeybee experience. We’ll get hands-on with the hives as we suit up and open them for an inspection. Participants will hold frames of bees, learn to use a smoker, take beekeeper notes, and even locate the queen. Depending on the day and tasks needed, participants will be helping with all aspects of running an apiary. Then, we'll extract honey directly out of the hive and start tasting the freshest honey possible. After the hive dive, we’ll gather together for a honey tasting. Like wine, all honey is different. So at our honey tasting, we’ll be trying varieties from many terriors. We will get to taste a variety of honey from Napa Valley and around the globe. Beekeepers are also available to answer questions and discuss the experience: 1) Did anyone overcome their fear of bees? We sure hope so! 2) Is anyone going to blame a honey bee for stinging them when it was really a yellow jacket ever again? No way...! 3) Would anyone call pest control when they see a swarm of bees? Of course not, call a beekeeper!

About
Message
Rob Keller became interested in incorporating bees into his art practice while working on his MFA from UC Davis in 1999. Now, as the owner of a small bee business, The Napa Valley Bee Company, his goal is to build a community of beekeepers in his area that practice responsible, sustainable hive management with the bees’ best interests in mind. These days, the bees are working less for Rob's art, and he's working more for the bees - becoming one of the leading advocates for bees in his area. Rob currently runs three large scale apiaries in the Valley, manages numerous private hives, and teaches the vocation of beekeeping at The St.Helena Montessori School in the Napa Valley. He lives in downtown Napa with his yogini wife and eleven-year-old beekeeping-son Davis.
