IS CLOVERMEAD WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
The Honey Gift Shop & Adventure farm are wheelchair accessible, as well as the washrooms.
IS THERE DANGER IN GETTING STUNG?
Clovermead keeps most of their bee hives on other farm land so there are not 24 million bees flying around on the farm. The honey bees here are pretty friendly & you generally do not notice them. Just like in a park! Honey bees are vegetarians, they eat pollen & collect nectar, they do not eat people. Bees will sting if they feel threatened, they will leave you alone if you leave them BEE.
ARE WE ALLOWED TO BRING OUR OWN FOOD?
Outside food is not permitted. Our Beestro Cafe will bee open with menu options. For your convenience, Clovermead has picnic tables in the parking areas for you to eat your own lunch if you wish. Day camps & schools are allowed to bring in their lunches.
IS THERE PARKING AVAILABLE FOR MOTOR COACHES?
Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot accommodate parking for motorcoach buses.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
Hive demonstrations and cannon shows will bee cancelled if it is raining. The farm will still be open if you would like to be adventurous in the rain. Some attractions & the Beestro Cafe may bee closed.
What is your Adventure Farm Cancellation and Rain Policy?
Admission tickets purchased at the gate: The admission tickets you purchased here at Clovermead are non-refundable. The Adventure Farm is open rain or shine! We highly recommend you look at the weather forecast for the Aylmer area before spending the day outside on the Adventure Farm.
WHEN WILL THE BEES BE ON DISPLAY?
The glass bee hive is filled with bees when it is warm during the day & night. The bees do not do well in this hive when it is cold. Usually the hive is ready the second week of June until the end of September.
