There was very little interactive learning (mostly just a lecture), and nobody was warned that we'd be in an unheated barn on a cold day. The wine and honey tasting was super limited and perfunctory, not a lot of fun. All in all an OK lecture (it was not a workshop) about beekeeping, but I would be upset if I had paid the full $90 price.

Would not have known about this honey were it not for the Groupon. Very informative workshop and excellent honey. The honey tasting alone was worth it. (I thought the honey was better than the wine.)

The speaker was informative, and dealt very well with a child that was in the audience. Love the product and hope to buy more :-)

Fun and very informative! One idea...bring photos or make a photobook (like on shutterfly) of the whole process; setting up the hives, checking on the bees, harvesting the honey, farmer's market, etc. Would be interesting to see some of the steps.

From Our Editors

More than a century ago, an industrious farmer named Gerard enlisted the help of bees to pollinate his family estate. Inadvertently, the buzzing insects fertilized a new passion for Gerard, one that would become a family tradition.

Four generations later, Gerard’Z Honeybees' bustling hives create more than a dozen local and monofloral honeys from such plants as star thistle, orange blossoms, and avocado blossoms. Because the honeys are completely raw and natural, they maintain the micro-nutritious qualities often left out of industrial varieties, and they may help allergy sufferers to acclimate to their local pollen varieties.

Gerard’Z holds year-round beekeeping workshops and honey tasting seminars at local wineries, nurseries, and farmers’ markets throughout the Bay Area and Central Valley. During the classes and tastings, bee experts demystify the process of maintaining a hive, and people get the chance to taste the difference between clover honey, buckwheat honey, black sage honey, and Doritos honey. Gerard’Z also helps to maintain the delicate honeybee population by finding homes for wild swarms or colonies that have built hives in unwanted places and might otherwise fall prey to exterminators.
