About
Milea Bee Farm is not not your typical, manicured farm. You will be visiting a small farm dedicated for the propagation and care of various species of honey producing bees. It is situated in a secluded area with no neighbours and without electricity, and it's a five minute walk from the parking area. Visitors will be having a guided tour to see the bees in their habitat. We have the Italian Bees, Philippine Native Honey Bees and different kinds of Philippine Native Stingless Bees. You can have a taste of honey, fresh from the bee hive; know and see the different honey producing bee species; know the sources of nectar and pollen as well as edible flowers; discover the relationship between bees & flowers; and how bees are closely related to the food chain. It will be an entirely new experience which gets you much closer to nature. Milea Bee Farm is only open to visitors every first Saturday of the month. Please note that this is not a resort and we do not have a restaurant though we serve food using farm produced ingredients with prior arrangement. Hope we could share to you why bees are important and how you can lend a hand in our campaign and the worldwide concern to help save the bees.

Educational yet scenic tour
Jan 2021 • Family
The trip going to the place is quite challenging since it is located somewhere near the foot of the mountain. However, it was all worth it. The tour guide was informative with regard to what's available in their farm; from bees to few animals to equipment to plants. The scenery is so calm and relaxed that you might want to stay for a night to go camping (not available though). I would recommend future visitors to use insect repellant, face masks and wear shoes or any foot cover to avoid insect bites. After the tour, you will be provided delicious snacks and refreshments. You can also buy their products in their store. Hope they could expand more and perhaps have some available rooms for overnight stay. 😊👍👍👍

Fun Day Trip to Milea
Jan 2021 • Family
It was very informative! We got to try the different edible fruits, flowers, and herbs as our guide Ms. Precious explained their benefits to us. She was really friendly and welcoming. Got to try Honey straight from the hive too!

Huge plus was that the tour included a small yummy snack!

We went there to get authentic honey and we were not disappointed.

This informative tour was the highlight of our trip. The guide was passionate and a wealth of information. The farm was awesome. Very grounding, peaceful. We learnt a lot about edible plants, Heath benefits and the importance of bees and how they were teaching the local farmers.
Thank you!

Stingless Bee Workshop
Aug 2019
My first visit in 2015 was simply to visit the farm, this time it was to do the 'Stingless Bee' Workshop, a one day course coving the practical, academic, and business aspects of Stingless Bee keeping. Incredibly well organized, I came away with a greater understanding and appreciation of keeping native stingless bees.
A superb 1 hectare site this is a real life inspirational working farm - highly recommended, for beekeepers, wannabe beekeepers and anyone who wants to be inspired

Beeautiful place to spend the day
Mar 2019 • Family
I want my daughter to be closer to nature and so we spent the day at Milea Bee Farm where she learned about bees and many plants. She enjoyed picking vegetables - string beans, tomatoes, bell pepper, purple corn, celery and chili peppers. She chased the pigeons and helped scatter flowering seeds in the garden area. She drank the water with cucumber and mint, which she didn't want to taste at first but learned it was refreshing after so much running up and down the path.
Some guests came in who visited previously and told how the oils she bought helped her daughter releive her allergy symptoms.
It was an enjoyable day at the farm & we had a lot of vegetables to bring home. Looking forward to make chopsuey, pancit and tacos with my loot!

Very friendly staff. We went on the tour and our guide was so knowledgeable. Not only will you learn about bee keeping, but also, agriculture. They have a shop where you can purchase different products. Will go back again soon.

Very informative tour
Feb 2019 • Friends
I learned a lot from the owner Rico who gave the tour himself. It was very experiential how he would pick small things from the surroundings and ask you to taste, smell and identify them. It was great how he maximized his farm space and I loved the many original products they had in the store.

HONEY of Milea
Feb 2019 • Family
Secluded place. You have to trek for few minutes to reach the Milea from the parking area. They have pick n pay veggies. They have small shop for their products like soap, shampoo, oil, lip balm..and many more products made from nature. I bought 1 exfoliating soap (coconut soap) and 1 lip balm - P90 each. Ang ganda ng products nila. Highly recommended. I also bought Milea's honey @ 1,675/btl abt 1400g. Sir Rico is very accomodating and well rounded about nature, bees and of course honey. You will learn a lot from him. Will definitely visit again to buy soap and lip balm.

We visited the farm on a whim one Sunday afternoon. We got our directions through Waze. The owner, Sir Rico, was very friendly and knowledgeable about agriculture. He explained that bees aren’t just for honey production but is also very helpful in plant propagation. Our farm guide, Kuya Will, also patiently and enthusiastically toured us around the farm.

Overall, it was a very good and enlightening experience for the whole family.
