Our Beekeeping Taster day will help you find out more about bees. You will learn how honeybee colonies function, how and why they make honey and what it takes to manage them. You don’t have to be an aspiring beekeeper to gain a lot from our Taster day experience. On the other hand, if you are considering taking up beekeeping you will learn what it involves, how much time it will take and what it might cost.
We start the morning with a presentation about honeybees at the Windmill Inn, Whiteley Green. This covers how honeybees organise themselves and an introduction to the members of the colony. In addition, we also look at what is involved in keeping bees. This includes how where to put your bees and how to look after them. After lunch we move to the apiary. Everyone dons protective beekeeping veils for the practical demonstration at the apiary. This will give you the opportunity to get up close to the bees!
The Beekeeping Taster day includes tea/coffee and a buffet lunch at the award winning Windmill Inn.
Gift vouchers are available if you would like to book a place as a gift, maybe for a birthday or for Christmas.
