Come see what the buzz Is all about at this HONEY and BEE fair! “Honey in the Valley” is a Family friendly event, with activities for all ages.

Start the afternoon by visiting us at the Dorset Valley Schoolhouse Restaurant, featuring a honey inspired lunch and dessert menu. After a satisfying lunch, join the beekeepers outside to learn more about beekeeping, take a hive tour, and collect honey from the farm.

A variety of vendors will “Bee” on hand, showcasing honey and bee inspired goods, handcrafted just for YOU.

Kids will have plenty to do at this event, while taking part in educational opportunities, dressing up in bee-suits, and exploring the petting zoo.

And can’t forget about the ADULTS. We will have local beer and Honeywine MEAD samples, as well as a honey inspired drink menu.

We look forward to you joining us at “Honey in the Valley”, on May 14th.
