Resorts are sweetening up their agro-tourism options with beehives that not only supply honey for their restaurants and spas but also offer guests a chance to learn a few things about beekeeping. At The Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver, B.C., guests can join in on garden and hive tours to meet these hardworking honeybees (they produce some 4,700 pounds of honey a year), and if the tour leaves them with a thirst for the liquid gold, they can sample it in the hotel’s own “Stinger” Honey Lager, produced in partnership with the nearby Whistler Brewing Company. The 500-acre Carmel Valley Ranch in California is home to some 60,000 bees, and guests can go on a “bee experience” tour with an apiarist, which begins with glasses of honey-lavender lemonade and ends with a sampling of honeys. In Texas, Travaasa Austin resort plans to introduce beehives into their 3.25-acre working farm, which already offers farm experiences including classes on composting, chicken care, and growing and harvesting vegetables. fairmont.comcarmelvalleyranch.comtravaasa.com
