Mission Beelieve is having a family day full of fun, recognizing Honey Bees and the Beekeepers who tend the hives. Learn about the importance of honey bees and other pollinators as you wander through the farm enjoying all kinds of activities! We are asking for a $5.00 donation to help fund the construction of a therapeutic bee house for disabled veterans better access their bees.
Experienced beekeepers will take you through the extraction process from frame to jar!
Children can enjoy hands on crafts while learning about honey bees and other pollinators.
Live Music from: Mallow Hill

Most beekeepers know colonies can hiss, but the sounds that honey bees make can reveal a lot about their status and health. Several devices have been developed to help beekeepers interpret these sounds and their deeper meaning, and beekeepers who are deaf or hard-of-hearing may find such tools especially useful. A number of acoustic monitoring devices can be found under the Acoustics tab of this website
Michigan State University Extension provides free training and community development around beekeeping to US veterans, active-duty personnel, National Guard, and reservists across the globe. Check out more here.
