Beekeeping Experience

Experience a Day in the Life of a Beekeeper

This workshop will take you inside a working beehive to discover the world of the honeybee and its management, demonstrate equipment required by a beekeeper, and give an overview of the beekeeping year.

You might be toying with the idea of purchasing a beehive, but would like more guidance. We are ethical beekeepers and have a big passion for honeybees and the role they play in the environment.

Join us on a beekeeping experience to discover more about the exciting world of this most complex and productive insect and enjoy a hands on exploration inside a hive of honeybees at one of the Croxtons apiaries.

The experience will include basic honeybee and beehive matters:

  • Handling live honeybees
  • Inspecting the inside of a beehive
  • Understanding how a beehive works
  • The do’s and don’ts of beekeeping
  • How can you help save the bees

Light refreshments will be provided

The event will definitely feed your curiosity and interest in bees but also in the wider natural world and may even encourage you to take up beekeeping.

Please wear long-sleeved clothing, trousers, wellies or sturdy boots. Do not wear perfume, drink alcohol, eat bananas or work with animals prior to attending. If you use reading glasses, please bring them with you. Protective bee-keeping clothing will be supplied.

Spaces are limited to 6 and fill quickly, so book today to avoid disappointment.

This amazing experience will last for 2 hours and we have two slots available on each day: morning from 10.00 to 12.00 or afternoon, from 13:00 to 15:00.
