The bee farm experience starts with finding your way to one of the important representations of provincial life in Bohol. It’s like a sanctuary hidden in all those greeneries, hence, it’s better to ask a local to drive for you. It was good that our arrival coincided with the first batch of the farm tour. The P20 fee/person for the 20 to 30 minutes glimpse of farm life is very reasonable. They let us use the woven (buri) hats for free in the entire duration of the tour for a more “in the farm feel”.
["Babae or lalaki ba si Jollibee?" (Is Jollibee (the mascot) female or male?), asked by the guide. Not only the kids, but all of us were glued to our guide's bits of information. Understandably, there was the is-that-true-i-will-google-that-later trivial stuff moment. The interesting parts were when he was telling us how to differentiate a female (has distinct stripes (so is Jollibee!) and stingers) from a male bee (with larger eyes), the reproduction cycle, and more. We even had the chance to hold that tray of bees without stinging us.]
