Saturday August 25, 12:30 – 2:00 pm (Village open 10am-2pm)

A sweet finish to summer: local beekeeper and bee-teacher Tom Jenkins guides guests in removing honey from honeycomb. This fascinating process involves a wax knife, frames from beehives, and a spinning centrifuge. Tom will also supply a sample of honey to each family, teach us about being an “apiarist,” and the value of bees and honey in our lives. Handle, cut, smell and taste the results! Ages 6 to adult only.

Price: Troy Historical Society Members: $4/person; Non-members: $9/adult, $7/senior or child ages 6-12. Honey Harvest limited to 36 persons—advance registration strongly recommended!
