Bees are not only producers but also ecological indicators. Bees are the media that connect humans and land and protect nature. With bees making honey, plants can multiply and grow. Ten years ago, the Honey Museum initiated the “releasing bees in the field” project, seeking farmers willing to adopt eco-friendly farming by providing bees to pollinate the flowers in the field for free to increase harvest and yield rate. Furthermore, he made contracts with more than a hundred beekeepers to maintain their income and the stable production of honey in Taiwan.
In the hall, there are Cheng family’s beekeeping memorabilia, bee beehive profile display and commentary on ecology. In recent years, the bee hall has also developed special processed products that can be bought as souvenirs, such as bee wine and bee vinegar, as well as egg rolls, cakes, biscuits, pudding, and throat lozenges. There is also an exhibition area for the bee release program in the field.
For the DIY experience, there are honey-stuffed flowers and fruits made with homemade honey and various organic flowers, and marigold balm made with beeswax, calendula oil, essential oil, etc. Various desserts, coffees, drinks, and others carefully prepared by honey can be found in the honey garden coffee house next to the hall. Sweet honey ice cream can also be eaten with honeycombs, and ice brewed coffee is specially made by blending coffee briquettes, milk and honey.
