Have you ever wondered what goes on inside a bee hive?
This is the opportunity you have been waiting for!
This is an ideal experience during your holidays or as a Christmas / birthday / mother's day/ father's day gift experience (minimum age 14).
This half-day taster event is a great way to find out about the day to day life of honeybees in the company of a professional beekeeper.The event is also ideal for anyone who would like to learn more about the life of honey bees and the beekeeper's year before making the decision to attend a full beginners' course.
The covid-19 pandemic restrictions in Wales permit individuals from two different households to meet outdoors. We can therefore now offer this in-person course to individuals from the same household as it is held entirely outdoors whilst maintaining social distancing. Furthermore, rest assured that the protective bee suits issued to you are thoroughly laundered between each use.
After discussing the following aspects, we will kit up in protective clothing and amble out to the apiary where you will get some hands-on experience of handling the bees under supervision.
Why keep bees?
A bit of honey bee biology
Stings and swarming
The beekeeper's year
