1. Cameron Tringkap Bee Farm
You can stop here after the Lavender Garden on your way to Brinchang or Tanah Rata!
The shop is on the main road that runs through Tringkap. And this area is prone to high traffic on weekends!
It’s free to enter the small bee museum where you can gain insight on the health benefits of honey and how honey is made.
They even have some tools of the trade on display at the museum! But while they have many different species of bees to see, don’t expect to see any live bees here:
Cameron Tringkap Bee Farm does not have an on-site apiary or bee farm for visitors to explore.
Browse through and sample the GiantB selection of honey. And other various honey-based products at their souvenir counter.
And maybe pick up some fresh vegetables at their on-site vegetable stall.
There are succulents at good prices too.
Note: An apiary is what you call a place that rears bees.

3. Highlands Apiary Farm, Bee Farm, Strawberry Farm
Highlands Apiary Farm at Habu, Ringlet combines a bee farm with a strawberry farm. It’s a pleasant enough stop as there are fewer tourists here and it’s on the way to a BOH tea estate (Habu or Fairlie).
There’s also no entrance fee to visit this place.
Note: If the owner is around, she may share some information about the bees.
You can buy their honey products (like handmade honey soap) and other souvenirs at their small shop at the back of the farm. And pick strawberries at their strawberry patch (Subject to availability)!
If you want to buy a box of their strawberries, it costs RM20. We bought a box and though the strawberries are small, they are sweet.
The homemade ice cream is worth a try and costs RM6.50. We enjoyed the passionfruit flavor as it is both sweet and sour.
As for the bees, the majority of the hives are behind the shop. But you can see them up close from a transparent bee display on a veranda.
You can sit down on the benches or swing outside the shop and admire their strawberry farm with a heart-shaped fish pond in the middle.
Note: It is an uphill walk through the farm and up to the shop.
