After our quick stop at Dauis Church, we proceeded to Bohol Bee Farm for an all-organic experience. Bohol Bee Farm is a resort located in Dauis, Panglao, Bohol. It is usually included in Panglao tours offered by travel agencies and vehicles for rent.
Bohol Bee Farm offers a guided tour around the area for a minimal fee of 30.00 Php. The tour starts with their organic garden where they plant medicinal plants, vegetable and flowers. Some of these vegetables and flowers were used as ingredients in their restaurant. Yup! Flowers. Bohol Bee Farm is famous for their Flower Salad and other organic offerings.
We were then escorted to their livelihood area. We met the ladies weaving the material to be used in various handicrafts like bags, fans, window coverings, etc. These products will be sold in Bohol Bee Shop.
Next, hundreds of bees greeted us in their honey comb. The guide told us some facts about the bees, the colony and how they produce the honey bees while taking out one compartment from the artificial beehive. She showed us how the bees make way for their queen and even let us hold one compartment.
Lastly, we were toured around their hotel and restaurant area. One thing that amazed me the most is that they used coconut shell instead of tiles in their building walls. They really stood up to their all-organic bandwagon. It is not noticeable until the guide suggested us to look at the walls closely. We didn’t eat in their restaurant though because I’m not a veggie and I planned on having dinner at Panglao Island Nature and Resort Spa (PINR).
After the tour, we stopped by the Bohol Bee Shop where they sell their garden and livelihood produce. We tried their best-selling organic ice creams placed in cassava cone. I didn’t finish mine, maybe because I am not that into vegetables.

- Tour Fee (Adults) – 30.00 Php
