What is honey and what makes one honey different from another honey? This is your opportunity to get a first hand look into what goes into the production of local honey in the Los Angeles Area.
From the meeting location we will caravan (5 mins) to Eli’s apiary, suit up, and get into the hives. As Eli guides you through a typical bee hive inspection, you will discuss the basics of honey bee behavior, the benefits and difficulties of making honey in the Los Angeles area, and how to practice safe beekeeping practices to raise healthy, vigorous bees. You will then set up a taste test with 2-3 honey varieties made from different nectar sources and compare each one by texture, color, and tasting notes.
