Milea Bee farm is located in Balagtasin, San Jose, Batangas. It's an hour and a half drive from Osmena Highway thru STAR Tollway.
The place is not your usual bee farm resort place, From the car, we walked 10 minutes to get to the farm amid black pepper and mango trees. The owner/host greets visitors himself, and is always ready to answer questions about bees and organic farming.
The tour takes 2.5 hours which starts with introduction of bees, then a tour of the farm where several species were introduced. Closed encounter with the bees, like holding the frames and feeling the temperature of the bee houses were really exciting to both young and adults.
We were also taught how to detect real from fake honey!
The tour ends with snacks and drinks. The owners were also kind enough to give free seeds of flowering plants that abound the farm.
All in all, the tour is: enjoying - with the hilly terraine, different kinds of bees and many many kinds of flowers that are edible and bees love; educating - we learned a lot about bees and growing our own food; and relaxing - it is a good feeling to be surrounded with nature.
I'd recommend Milea Bee Farm to families with children, groups who want to know more about and commune with nature; to those who are fascintated with the role of insects in our ecology; and to those who want a little excersise walking up and down the steps in the farm.
