Wow !!

This is the neatest place. It is so interesting and so educational for children and adults. I loved being able to watch bees do their thing and learn how and why they do it. I also shopped in the store, I spent an hour and will definitely be back soon to Christmas shop. I thank you for a wonderful time. I will tell everyone I know they must go to see Planet Bee.

I Love Planet Bee

I visited this store a while ago while visiting my sister in Vernon, and it was fun and interesting! The prices were reasonable enough for me to leave with a bag full of goodies, and the honey is delicious! Especially the cinnamon honey! I love the store, and hope to visit again soon!

An Uplifting Experience

While visiting Vernon, BC we had the pleasure of taking in a tour of Planet Bee. The staff was fantastic and patient with our five year old son and his wild questions. Planet Bee is a must see when visiting Vernon. The mini honey tasters of Planet Bee are delicious. We ended up bringing a few jars of honey back to Ontario with us. We also had family who live in Vernon send us more. Now that we have found you on line we will continue to BEE a customer of yours. Thank you for the amazing experience. OxOxO

Hi! My 5 year old daughter and I travel to Vernon from Ontario each year. We stopped in on a whim one summer and absolutely loved it! We learned so much and your staff were so awesome. We will be back!

Loved it!

I am scared to death of bees, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Planet Bee. It was fascinating to watch the bees go about their business; watching them making their honeycombs was a thrill. I also loved sampling the different honeys and the mead. We will definitely visit again when we come back to Vernon.

Thank you

My daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting your store in Vernon on Nov. 28th just before closing. There was a wonderful young employee there whose name I believe was "LEON"? He had an accent. He spent about 40 minutes with us, answering our many questions, and telling us all about the honey bees. We were just amazed at his knowledge, he let us taste the many honey samples and wines. We were terribly impressed with him going above and beyond the service that most employees would have offered us! We just wanted to let you know that you have an amazing employee in this young man! We will return to PLANET BEE on our next visit to Vernon! Many thanks!

Delightful!

I live in Manitoba while my parents have moved to Vernon a few years back. Every time I visit my Mom in Vernon we have to stop off at Planet Bee so I can get my fill of honey and most recently Honey Mead. I love the whole concept of Planet Bee. We are always pleasantly welcomed whenever we entre the store. I love the products and I love being able to see the bees. Thank you Planet Bee for giving me great memories and fantastic honey whenever I visit my parents.

Visit at Planet Bee

Our visit at Planet Bee was wonderful. The tasting of the various honeys was helpful in deciding the kind of honey we chose to buy. The staff was very kind and educational. Would recommend this visit to anyone in the area.

Amazing!

On a recent trip to Vernon for a couple of days vacation, we decided to take our 6 and 7 year old boys to Planet Bee. So worth going! The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. We had a mead tasting even though the lovely staff member was supposed to be off shift an hour before. Everything we purchased (mead included,of course!) was terrific. Thank you for being a highlight of our vacation!

Lonely Planet recommendation paid off!

My Fiance and I are from the Uk and were on a road trip through the Rocky Mountains from Vancouver. We saw a section on Vernon in the Lonely Planet book, due to the fact we were driving through on our journey and decided to stop off for an hour to see what it was all about. We were amazed at the store and the bees they had on display, The lady who talked to us about the bees was very informative and filled our heads full of fun facts about them, we couldn't resist stopping in the store on the way out and purchasing a few treats for friends and family back in England. Would highly recommend this to anyone with a little time to spare in the Vernon/Kelowna area, a must for all passing through.
