We are now taking bookings for our 2021 Bee Hive experiences! Due to popular demand of previous years we now have two dates available!
Why not book yourself onto a visit to a beehive with our Head Beekeeper
The experience will begin with a choice of tea, coffee and a slice of honey cake. You will be guided through the various aspects of beekeeping, the equipment, forage, swarming, the seasons, the difference between a worker, drone queen. After filling your head with knowledge you will get kitted up in a bee suit and visit a colony of bees with the chance to see a Queen Bee in all her majesty!
The tour will be followed by a chance to taste a variety of honey from our hives and the difference between each one. Before leaving each visitor will be able to choose a 340g jar of honey to take home with them. Just a little thank you from us and our bees! The bee experience will last approximately 3 hours and is dependent on weather.
Help support your local honey bees!
The experience day for 2021 will be held on 7th August at 10am at our home apiary (location will be released nearer the time) and costs £55.
To book your place requires a deposit (non refundable-unless cancelled due to weather) of only £20. The remaining additional balance of £35 is payable 4 weeks before the date of the experience.
A refund will be given in the event of coronavirus nationwide lockdown or inclement weather. No other refunds are accepted.
