Bee Hives: BEE AWARE! Hidden Oaks is home to three bee hives to educate our visitors of their many benefits and to harvest locally-grown honey. Honeybees are not aggressive unless provoked. Visitors sensitive or allergic to bee stings should exercise caution near hives. Purchase honey at the front desk for just $7.00 for an 8 oz jar, or $12 for a 16 oz jar while supplies last.
