Expereince days are tailored to give you a flavour of bee keeping. You will have a chance to open and explore the inner workings of the hive. You will learn about the various stages of the brood and to identify the caste of bees. “the Queens in there somewhere!” You will learn to handle the bees under the supervision of the David The Bee Farmer. Your first delve into a hives can be daunting. David takes you through the exercise at a steady pace.
The experience session lasts about two hours. Groups are small. No more than three people. The bee suits are provided, you need only bring a pair of Wellington boots, a pair of rubber gloves (Marigolds) and a sense of adventure. Take as many photos and ask as many questions as you wish.
