  • We welcome newcomers, maybe just thinking about becoming beekeepers, as well as new beekeepers, improvers and lifelong bee people.

  • Friends and family are welcome, age 10 years and upwards.

  • The bees are inspected annually by the National Bee Unit Seasonal Bee Inspector.

  • We emphasize the importance of personal safety when working with bees.  Everybody present should wear PPE:  a clean bee suit, gloves and wellies.
  • We prefer you to bring your own PPE.
  • We can provide good quality bee suits and gloves for newcomers and visitors: children’s sizes and adults up to XL.  Just bring wellies.

  • Would you like to join our pool of instuctors?

  • The training sessions are informal, and we encourage trainees to handle combs of bees under supervision.

  • Would you like to help with strimming and general gardening work at the apiary?
