This one day course provides the perfect opportunity for any budding beekeepers out there to get an introduction into the craft. It also promises to be a stimulating day for those who would simply love the chance to spend time in the stunning North Devon countryside learning about bees.
Led by a professional beekeeper, the day begins with honey tasting and some fascinating facts about beekeeping and bees, before it’s time to get suited up in full protective clothing to be shown, up close, the inner workings of a hive.Following a tasty, freshly prepared lunch in the café and a guided tour of Quince Honey Farm’s unique Bee World exhibition, the afternoon session provides the chance to conduct a supervised ‘Beehive Inspection’. This is an opportunity to do some real beekeeping, and to learn how to care for the bees and keep the hive healthy all year round. The knowledgeable resident beekeeper will wax lyrical about their profession, be on hand to answer any questions, offer up hints and tips and leave participants buzzing with excitement on a day well spent. With bees and beekeeping hitting the headlines now more than ever, it really is a fantastic time to get involved and help honeybees thrive in the British countryside.*Over 16s only.
