Event description

Description

Whole day – £95

14th Sept: 10.30am – 5pm

Take an in depth look at the beekeeping season and how to get your hive of bees through it. Starting in the Spring, we will look at how to organise your hive so that the bees get off to the best start after they emerge from the winter. As the colony gains strength you will need to know when to give bees space to collect honey, how to work with the colony’s natural instinct to swarm and spotting problems with pests and disease early so that your bees stay happy and healthy. Finishing with how to collect the harvest at the end of the season and preparing the hive for the colder months.

Throughout the day we will cover the practicalities of beekeeping alongside facts and theories about the bee’s life-cycle and the fascinating logic of the colony. You will get to practice making frames for honeycomb and, weather permitting, we will look inside the hive or watch the bees at work in the Farm’s observation hive.
