Bee Curious with Dr Daf The Bee Doctor - Half-day experience

X

Description

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside a beehive? This is the opportunity you have been waiting for! This action-packed half-day taster event is suitable for adults and for families with children of all ages and is ideal as a gift experience for a birthday, Christmas or Mothers' and Fathers' Day (gift vouchers are available.) It is suitable as the first step for wanna-bee beekeepers or for anyone inspired by recent tv programmes and would like to learn more about beekeeping and honey. You will discover why we keep bees and a bit about the lifecycle of honeybees before seeing them close up under a microscope and learning about the inner workings of beehives. We will then 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. To round off the experience you will get to do a blind honey-tasting and learn a bit about locally produced honey and then make a rolled bees-wax candle. In the event of unsuitable weather and for young children below the age of 9 yrs, we may provide an indoor glass-fronted observation hive. Please get in touch with any queries. We are also happy to consider providing a bespoke experience for larger groups and for families with young children below the age of 9 years. Please enquire!

What's included in the price?

A protective bee suit and gloves are provided if we visit the hives. Bed and Breakfast, shepherd's hut glamping and nearly-wild camping may be available - please enquire. I can also deliver this experience bilingually or entirely through the medium of Welsh. Please wear full-length trousers, a long-sleeved top and long socks and bring a baseball cap to wear under your veil and wellingtons or similar boots
