About this Event

Our experience sessions are set amongst the beautiful fields of Hitchin Lavender, Cadwell Farm. Gain an insight into life as a beekeeper, and receive practical, hands-on experience with a real hive of honeybees in our ultimate beekeeping experience session.

After introductions, Andre will run through a short intro to honeybees and beekeeping, including safety around hives. During this introduction Andre will explain how bees live, work and make honey. Then it will be time to put on a beekeeping suit and have an up close look at the hives. You'll hold a frame of bees and identify workers and drones and try to find the Queen bee.

Sessions are held outdoors, last for one hour and include a lovely pot of local honey to take home with you. All you need to bring is a sense of adventure and a pair of gloves and wellies. We look forward to welcoming you!

Andre & Jane Cardona
