As the saying goes, “you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar,” and it probably applies to tourist dollars as well. Our next stop on tour was a honey farm. Of course, it sold various honey- and bee-related products at the shop located near the exit. However, I guess that’s to be expected.
The bee farm wasn’t massive as I had originally thought. It looked more like an overgrown garden with wooden boxes set among the flowers. No one was there to tell us about bees or honey, so I don’t even know how the process works. I don’t know how many of those guys were buzzing about us or what species they were. I don’t know how long it takes to raise them or harvest their product. All in all, this part of the tour wasn’t very interesting.
Despite that, we had a nice, quick stroll through a botanical garden space and tried to avoid getting stung. I don’t think the bees were too interested in us though as there didn’t seem like many were out and about. The weather was warm so would have assumed they’d use this chance to gather pollen, but who knows what they were thinking?
