Honey Bees Up Close - Bee A Keeper
Your 1.5+ hour interactive experience with a bee colony begins with a multimedia overview of the life of a bee and the different jobs a bee has as they mature. Learn the parts of the hive. You’ll see a hive and learn how to hold a frame (without squishing the bees -they don’t like that). We’ll get suited up. Light a smoker. Do a safety check, and approach the hive. At the hive you’ll see and feel the power of propolis (a supplement for humans as well) -- its the glue bees use to seal up the hive. We’ll lift the lid and go inside. For some, that’s might be as far as they want to go. But, if you want to see more, we will do a complete hive inspection: Pull frames to see how the bees create honey and keep the colony alive. You’ll see open “wet cells” of nectar that are still in the process of transforming into honey. You’ll see capped honey, tiny freshly laid eggs and all the stages of bee development ( larvae, caped brood, and newly emerging “baby bees”). I’ll show you how beekeepers help control pests (other insects and diseases) and keep the bees healthy so they can do their important work. You’ll hold frames of bees and feel the weight of a full frame of honey when compared to a frame of bees. There’s always time for selfies. You’ll sample honey & enjoy a cold beverage

At this point you will be able to see, feel, hear and touch apis mellifera (the European honey bee!) as I guide you to a better understanding of these amazing creatures. During our time together you will manipulate equipment, ask questions and get a practical appreciation of the bees. After, you will enjoy a refreshment while we discuss your recent experiences. Upon completion, we provide a 5 oz honey jar and honey dipper to say thank you and as a memento of being a beekeper for a day! Things to note: There is always a chance of getting stung, So if you are allergic to bees please come with your epi-pen or choose a different experience. We want you to come away from this feeling alive and in tune with the natural world. The climate here can be hot and humid or cold and damp, please dress accordingly.

Scenic Dining with Local Chef
I am offering a unique dining experience unlike any other you’ve ever had. The experience includes two courses and wine pairing. The first course is an appetizer and the main course consists of a protein, starch, and vegetable. When booked far enough in advance, I send a proposed menu and begin working with guests to develop a menu that is suitable for them. However, there are limitations when hosting the experience on the beach. I do not have access to a kitchen so I must choose food that will hold up nicely in a hot box without compromising its quality or becoming unpalatable. I can accommodate vegan, vegetarian, and other specialty diets but please contact me before booking. Also, take some time to read the reviews as they provide valuable insight about the experience from the diner’s point of view. When the weather permits the experience takes place on Davis Islands Beach in Tampa, FL. You will be dining on a public beach and enjoying a view of the water from the sand. During hurricane season (June to November), rain is likely. The experience may be moved indoors or rescheduled. After food is purchased and prepared I will not authorize a refund due to inclement weather.

The Dancing Goat Dairy Farm Tour
I will give a short overview of the farm and we will get to know each other the first 10 minutes. Our walking tour starts with the ducks (they are up front) and continue through emus, chickens, geese and more ducks. It is a working farm so the farm will be in action around you from feeding to cleaning duties. We will continue to the barn area where we will first visit with our dry stock (non-milking) and bucks. Here is where the guests will be allowed to pet the animals and feed animal cookies we supply. I will explain the different breeds of goats, what they eat, how their digestion work and show the difference between our dry goats and our milking line. From time to time there are babies of all species from goats, to ducks, to chicks, to bunnies. We cannot plan what we will have at any one time but most always something with feathers in a brooder. We are also a cat foster so most of the time there are kittens to see. If we have baby goats at the time, the guests will have the opportunity to pet, snuggle and love on the goats. They will view the milking parlor The tour will conclude with a sampling of dairy products made here on the farm. Approx 2 hour tour depending on interest with the last 20-30 minutes spent sampling our various goat cheeses and products. We usually run over 1/2 hour. Wear comfortable shoes/clothes, bug spray or suncreen, if sensitive

Visit a Cat Adventure Park and Outdoor Cafe
When you arrive, you will take a short ride on the "Kitty Express" to "Cat Town." Our unique venue will transport you to an imaginary world where our rescued senior cats "rule." First, visit our "Longhorn Saloon," in our western town, where we will "whip up" your guests' favorite coffee or soft drink. Next, visit our various attractions, such as Lake Park, Furball Castle, Shanty Town, the Tiki Bar, Moon Lander Village, or Pokey's Patio. If you feel brave, you can entertain the cats and fellow guests by singing to our Karaoke machine! We have custom T-Shirts and Coffee Mugs available for sale (visit the Longhorn Saloon) At their option, Guests can have a "live stream" made of their experience (which they can view later on social media.) Notes: 1) Your entrance fee will be treated as a donation to our non-profit to help maintain our facility and save more homeless senior cats. 2) Since the guests will interact with live animals, they must sign a disclaimer. (no children under 12, please) 3) Keep in mind this facility is solely maintained by the 76-year-old Owners, Bruce and Terry Jenkins. (we have no volunteers)
