Taster Sessions

Have you ever wondered what it looks like inside a hive? Are you looking for something different to give a friend or loved one who has an interest in bees and beekeeping as a gift? We provide a two hour ‘Taster Session’ that will give the participant an insight into the world of the honey bee and beekeeping. You will be able to find out about the honey bee lifecycle and put on a beekeeping suit to look into a live hive and watch the honey bees at work.
