Honey Farm Activities

Activities in the park include arts/craft vendors, food vendors, educational speakers on beekeeping and the importance of bees in maintaining balance and production of many of our agriculture trees and plants. Also scheduled is live musical entertainment. Each day there will be 3 train rides to Bennett's Honey Farm, just east of Fillmore. The trains depart at 10:00am, 12:30pm and 3:00pm. During the ½ hour ride to the farm, there will be trackside demonstrations from actual beekeepers in their normal protective bee "suits' displaying how they "smoke" the bees in order to remove the frames so they can extract the honey and honeycombs. A docent will be on-board the train narrating the demonstration and describing the rural scenery. Once at Bennett's Honey Farm, passengers will be led by a docent for a tour of the processing facility. The only way to experience the "behind the scenes" tour is to take the train ride during the CA Honey Harvest Festival.
