Honey Bees – Adopt a Hive

Interested in learning about beekeeping and the lives of honeybees?
It’s possible with our Adopt a Hive Program.

   In this unique hands-on program you will suit up and work right alongside our passionate beekeeper and educator, Ann Murray. Ann is brimming with knowledge about these essential and truly extraordinary pollinators, and soon you will be too!
    Between April and October you and Ann will coordinate several monthly visits so you will have an opportunity to see first hand, how your hive progresses through the growing season. You will observe the behaviors and roles of workers, drones and possibly the queen, and you will be amazed at the engineering feats and endless productivity taking place in this superorganism known as the honeybee colony.
   This will be a hands-on learning experience that you will never forget! All beekeeping suits and equipment will be loaned to you during each visit.

Adopt a Hive 2019 only has a few spaces left!

Please let us know if you would like to be put on the list by sending an email to

$300 per NPF member family


Additional Ways to Support the Bees

We are always thrilled to have support for our honey bees. Donations of any amount will help support this beneficial insect and will be greatly appreciated. A donation of $120 will sponsor a colony, covering the cost of purchasing and maintaining a colony of bees on the farm.
