The family has engaged in beekeeping for 75 years. As the third generation, the eldest sister Cheng Shu-Ting is responsible for operating the Honey Museum. The most unforgettable memory for her is how she followed her parents to keep bees around Taiwan. At first, they could pick honey wherever there were flowers. However, like shepherds, they had to migrate to wherever grass and water were available. She still remembers that the kindergarten teacher often asked her, “Will you be attending school tomorrow?”
In 2005, Cheng Qi opened a small shop by Green Tunnel, Gukeng, Yunlin, to sell honey dishes that he developed. He also sold honey and related products that he produced on his own. The shop was highly acclaimed. Cheng Qi discovered that tourists not only want to shop for products, but are also interested in beekeeping and the honey making process. The following year, he established the Honey Museum to promote beekeeping through storytelling

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.

Features of Agricultural Tourism


The bee hall has an outdoor bee farm, where the species on display are mostly Italian bees. Visitors can observe the bees under proper protection.

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.
