Free Tasting - All Day, Every Day
We offer over 15 different floral varieties of honey.
This means that by placing our bees in different areas, we receive different flavours of honey from different flowers.
Although the vast majority of our honey is produced in Canada, we import unique floral varieties from The United States, Australia, and Hungary to offer you the world's best gourmet honeys all in one location.
We also offer flavour infused honeys, such as Cinnamon, Maple, and Lavender.
We encourage every customer to sample the different honeys and find a new personal favourite!
For those 19+, we offer Mead sampling too! We produce 8 different honey wines on site, ranging from an ice wine sweet (#5), to a dry wine (#1).
Come taste history with a bottle of the oldest known alcohol beverage and learn the origin of the term Honeymoon.

Although summer is the best season for observing the bees at work,
Planet Bee is open All Year and bees are still observed in their glass hives

I am scared to death of bees, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Planet Bee. It was fascinating to watch the bees go about their business; watching them making their honeycombs was a thrill. I also loved sampling the different honeys and the mead. We will definitely visit again when we come back to Vernon.
- Alysha Macdonald, Millgrove, Ontario Wow !!
This is the neatest place. It is so interesting and so educational for children and adults. I loved being able to watch bees do their thing and learn how and why they do it. I also shopped in the store, I spent an hour and will definitely be back soon to Christmas shop. I thank you for a wonderful time. I will tell everyone I know they must go to see Planet Bee.
- Carol Arbuthnott, Sicamous, BC First Visit
I visited Planet Bee with a group tour and got many info and knowledge about honey bees, its products and benefits. Finally I bought the maple honey and the favorite black ointment. I also bought some jars of maple honey for my friends in my hometown and they love it! Next time if I travel to BC again, I'll visit Planet Bee again. Thanks Planet Bee, cheers!
