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.

It was a fun and very educational trip for us adults and kids. We learned the importance of bees in the ecosystem and not just the honey they produce. Did you know that there are 7 species of bees in the Philippines, and some stingers and some non stingers and how tiny they are? Amazing isn't it?! So head to... More

My unexpected visit to Milea Bee Farm in batabgas has become part of my personal spiritual journey. The walk on the narrow rough road to the farm was symbolic to my moving forward in life from dark moments, and with a lot of faith in the pockets not knowing what is at the end of the road. The green plants... More

This February we went to Milea Bee Farm. We have wonderfully cool teas of different colors from edible plants - lemongrass, lemon, calamansi, dalandan & flowers (i forgot the name):) Rico gave a very extensive lecture on bees, how they behave & make honey & how important they are in the ecosystem. He is very generous in sharing his knowledge... More

The experience was full of information about bees particularly their purpose and their impact not only in the production of honey but their impact to the food sustainability to mankind. Bees are not dangerous and will not sting as long as they are not threatened. Rico was also kind enough to show us the various flowers and herbs produced at... More

This is our second time to visit Milea bee farm and will surely visit again. The place is perfect if you want to unplug from the hustles and noisy life in the metro. Here in the farm you'll get a chance to connect with nature. Birds chirping, flowers and butterflies everywhere and of course the bees. Mr Rico, the owner... More

We were in Talisay, Lipa and Batangas City for 2 weeks. We looked so forward to going to Milea. When we finally did, it made our vacation even more enjoyable. Initially, my mom did not even want to go but we convinced her. Then, it wasn't long into the tour when my mom became Rico's biggest fan. We learned so... More

It's a nice place to visit and buy some bee product like pollen, honey and others. The place isn't super easy to find, the staff is nice and friendly. Honey is natural but not super quality, i presume depends on the weather. But being a local product, worth a shot.
