Beekeeper for a Day Gift Experience

Join us on our award-winning organic farm for an experience day to remember!

Restricted to a maximum of 10 people, you'll be helping our beekeepers with the seasonal jobs for the day to get an insight into what it's like to be a bee farmer, including a guided tour of working beehives; an up-close and personal experience with honeybees. Enjoy a short guided tour of the gardens we created for a bee-friendly site before heading back to the barn to enjoy a unique honey tasting session; a delicious way to learn how bees create different types of honey.

We'll provide everything you need including a beekeeper suit for the day, unlimited refreshments and an organic pizza lunch using organic, home grown and local ingredients. You'll go home with a jar of our award-winning honey and a packet of organic, bee-friendly flower seeds, too!

I was very impressed by the set up. The workshop and gardens that they have created are magnificent, and the whole itinerary they have devised for the day works extremely well, combining hands on work, gentle instruction, and a chance to get up close and personal to several thousand bees. A wonderful day, in lovely informal surroundings.

I have always wanted to keep bees and this course absolutely consolidated my belief. Jez was an excellent mine of information and he delivered the facts clearly and succinctly, constantly recapping so the info well and truly sank in. It was lovely to meet enthusiastic people who do everything ethically and are committed to helping the environment. Coming face to face with these beautiful insects is almost overwhelming. I cannot wait to get started.

Beekeeping 'Next Steps' 1 Day Workshop

We have been inundated by people wanting to return to the farm and learn more! This 1 day workshop is for those who are new to beekeeping but already have bees. You might be a new beekeeper or have attended our Beekeeping for Beginners Workshop but you should ideally already have bees.

In this workshop we cover in much more detail the diseases honeybees are at risk of, what to look out for and practical methods for treating or controlling them as well as imparting knowledge based on experience: tips, tricks and ways to make your beekeeping safer, more fun and less messy!

We finish the day with a question and answer sessions; the ideal opportunity for you to pose challenges you've experienced and for us to provide practical, efficacious solutions as well as looking in-depth at the pros and cons of various pieces of equipment available on the market.

As with all our workshops, everything is included - many people come back just for the organic pizza lunch, cooked in our outdoor, wood-fired pizza oven! If you wish to bring your own beekeeping suits they must be cleaned prior to arrival.

It was the perfect course to fill in gaps in my knowledge and learn so many ways to make my bee keeping easier and more fun! I feel much more confident about handling my bees and spotting disease now - great fun and a useful and practical day with fantastic resources.

Your setup there is amazing, I especially loved the wood fired pizzas and trial honey tasting.

The atmosphere was relaxed and the whole day fun and entertaining and very informative.
