Owner description: Panama's home of live, bio-active single variety honey. We also have a 200 sq meter butterfly house with over 30 local species of butterflies. Emerge yourself in the pollinators with a half day tour or else just swing buy for honey tastings and butterfly house (open 9-4), shop (open 9-4). We have a unique offering and we want to share it with people who like high quality honey, love nature and want to make a difference by supporting our small business. We are passionate about taste. We can offer honey tastings like no other. More varied than anywhere else in the world that we know of. We produce a vast range of different flavors of honey depending on the floral source. This is unique and only possible because of the enormous biodiversity in Western Panama around Volcan Baru. This small Isthmus has Atlantic and Pacific coasts, 11,000 ft mountains and just about every type of forest and grassland in between. Some of our honeys are rare, some we have in larger quantity. We are serious about health. Our honey and our honey bees are very healthy. We sell raw minimally filtered honey. More than that though, our honey is pure and pristine in ways that are not possible in most of the developed world: 1. Most of our honeys are from wild plants which have no chemical treatment and are utterly pristine 2. Our bees are healthy, we do not need to feed antibiotics or miticides We want to teach people to better understand how to care for our pollinators. We offer a tour on our honey farm in Boquete. We treasure all types of bees and keep on the farm a wide variety of forage for bees, different types of native bees to illustrate how bees and plants are meant to exist together. Our butterfly house is 200 sq meters and is full of fun and activity. Sure to delight all ages.

The tour guide was so passionate about sharing his passion of the bees of Boquete. He is very knowledgeable about the many honey flavor components - lavender, turmeric, & cinnamon, for example.

A nice tasting of over 12 honey types, some infussions and a very nice guide, who can explain more about bees, and their process. If you like honey, this is the place for you!

Today I went here with my girlfriend and my brother. We have been travelling for more than 5 years and in this time we have visited a lot of farms of all sorts. But this farm for us was a renewing experience. We came without an appointment and even though the tours have are normally only three times a day, this was not a problem! The guy working welcomed us friendly and offered us a taste of their delicious home grown coffee. He told us he had an other group comming in for the honey tasting and if we would want we could join.

A friendly girl gave us the honey tasting tour and explained about the different flavours and how they created the fusion honeys. After this tour the guy who welcomed us took only the three of us and we did the tour to see the butterfly farm and he showed us their coffee, orange, honey farm. This expirience was amazing! The guy knew everything and could answer all the questions. By the way he was talking you could see this was his pasion and he was super proud of the farm. His enthousiasm is rare and for us it made the tour better than all other tours we did. For this reason my long review. So my advice to everyone is take the tour, enjoy the nature, the farm and the enthousiasm, tours like these are rare !!!! ps. yes the honey is delicious and so is the coffee:-)
