Experience A Hands On Bee Keeping Workshop

We'll be going into a hands on beekeeping fun and educational experience. After an introduction and safety lesson you will be taught how to be a bee keeper including topics such as tools and equipment, bee life cycles and roles, pests and diseases, Queen rearing. Flow hive Q & A. How to merge a hive, how to move a hive, how to catch a swarm, how to split a hive.

Following the theory lesson we will get suited up into the protective clothing and head into the yard. We will first light the smokers (to make the bees docile) then I will demonstrate opening up a bee hive for an inspection.

Then it is over to you, it's your turn to open up a bee hive, pull out the frames one by one and try to find the queen, check she is laying eggs properly, check there are no pests or parasites attacking the hive on the inside and check the bees are building the comb straight.

Tastings of various honeys to follow.

PROTECTIVE SUITS PROVIDED

I only have adult sized bee suits therefore children under 12 cannot participate.

Run time is approximate.

No cancellations under 1 week from starting date.

Can sometimes do custom days if you have 4 or more in your group.

Great experience. We went as a family and found the whole experience great. Martin is very knowledgeable. The theory was great covering all areas of beehive keeping but the practical hands on was also good. The whole family walked away happy and totally enjoyed the experience. Thankyou

What a great thing to do on a Saturday! It is definitely a hands on experience. The theory of bees kept us interested for the whole time and Martin was a great storyteller. Inspecting a hive was so much fun and I would.highly recommend this experience just to learn something new and interesting

I received this experience as a gift due to my love for bees. I had such a lovely day and learnt so much. I feel equipped to start my own hive when the time is right. Martin was very friendly and thorough. He has a genuine passion for bee keeping and was happy to answer all my questions. The theory part was informative and gives you all you need to know to get started. The practical part was "hands on" exactly as the description says and you get to practice hive maintenance on your own. Wonderful class and lovely loxation. I would highly recommend!

My group and I had a fantastic time with Martin. He has great knowledge on the subject and answered and expanded upon all questions. We feel well equipped to get our own hives going once we’re back home!

Hands on and educational crash course on beekeeping! Martin was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. He even took more time afterwards to explain to us some content we’ve missed. Lovely +peaceful lakeside location as well. Highly recommend :)

Great introduction to bee-keeping from Martin, who knows what he is talking about. Half theory and half hands on with the hives. Covered equipment, the basics, tips and traps, and lots of good practical advice. Thoroughly recommended

Fler tips

There is a slight chance of being stung by a bee. For that reason I would not suggest this for those with a bee allergy. This typically only happens when people wear inappropriate shoes or socks.

Vad man ska ha med sig

Fully enclosed shoes. Preferably not black shoes if possible

Normal length white socks. NOT ANKLE SOCKS.
