Beekeeping Experience 10yr & over

  • Please wear long-sleeved clothing and bring wellies or ankle height, flat boots.

    The ground is uneven, and bees like to crawl up into dark spaces!

    Please do not wear perfume, drink alcohol, eat bananas (The smell of a banana is the same as the alarm pheromone given of by bees when stinging.)

    We will supply you with a protective bee suit for use during the experience.


    We cannot guarantee you won’t get stung but will do our very best to ensure you don’t - IF YOU HAVE BEE STING ALLERGIES, THIS EXPERIENCE ISNT FOR YOU.

  • Experiences take place from  May through to August each year and are weather dependent.

    Should an experience have to be postponed a new date will be offered.
