Það sem verður gert

Reopening to fully vaccinated people shortly. Vaccination proof is required on arrival (aged care nurse in household, can't take any chances, sorry).

Saturdays $99 per person.

We'll be going into a hands-on beekeeping fun and educational experience. After an introduction and safety lesson, you will be taught how to be a beekeeper including topics such as tools and equipment, bee life cycles and roles, pests and diseases, Queen rearing. Flow hive Q & A. How to merge a hive, how to move a hive, how to catch a swarm, how to split a hive.

Following the theory lesson, a quick break and another chance for tea/coffee. In the second half, we will get suited into the protective clothing and start the hands-on part. We will first light the smokers (to make the bees docile) then I will demonstrate opening up a beehive for an inspection.

Then it is over to you, it's your turn to open up a beehive, pull out the frames one by one and try to find the queen, check she is laying eggs properly, check there are no pests or parasites attacking the hive on the inside and check the bees are building the comb straight.

Tastings of various honey.

A fantastic beginners course covering all aspects of beekeeping, being able to have a go at checking a hive whilst being monitored to make sure all is done correctly was such a valuable experience.

I booked this experience as part of my itinerary for the Hunter Valley. The timing of this activity is perfect as it ends at 2pm and by the time you reach the Hunter Valley, you’ll be on time for hotel check in. The session was extremely educational, which I really enjoyed. It was a bonus that it was a private session as the only attendants on the day was my husband and I. I was really scared of the bees at first, but now that I’m home, I kind of miss the bees. In addition to the interactive side of being allows to inspect the bees hives, we were offered a tasting of Martin’s homemade honey and mead of versions flavours which was delicious. Overall, I highly recommend this experience regardless if you plan on becoming beekeeper yourself or not.

I purchased this as a gift for my parents and they said it was one of the best gifts they’ve ever received! They couldn’t speak highly enough of Martin’s kindness and knowledge of bees. They said they had an incredible day and that ‘it was easily worth twice the price!’.
