Bee Keeping Experience

Bee-come a Bee Keeper and learn all about the fascinating world of the honey bee.

Highlights

  • Learn about bees including their lifecycle, why manuka honey is so amazing and the importance of bees to our global food chain.
  • Put on a full-length bee suit and join an experienced Bee Keeper to help open an active hive to observe its inner workings
  • Witness the different bees found in a hive and hopefully locate the Queen.

Interactive and exciting, our bee keeping experience is incredible!

We’ll start with an informative digital presentation before donning a full-length bee suit and joining an experienced Bee Keeper to open and work an active hive.

You’ll get to witness the inner workings of these amazing colonies while learning about their secrets from your friendly and knowledgeable guide.

Suitable for anyone 6 years and over, our fun and easy experience requires no physical fitness and is great for families with children sized bee suits available.

Please note, sturdy footwear and socks are required. We recommend wearing long pants and a long sleeve top, but these are not essential.

We also cannot open a working hive in cold weather as this can kill or severely damage a working Hive, so in bad weather we’ll open up one of our Indoor live hives.
