Honeyworks Beekeeping Centre

At the Honeyworks site you can learn how to keep honey bees and extract honey in a friendly, supportive environment, working alongside our experienced beekeepers in the Honeyworks Apiary.

Taster Days

Our Taster Day is designed for anyone who wishes to find out more about bees and to discover if bee-keeping is for them !

The one day course starts with a general introduction to beekeeping and a quick look at the typical beekeeping year, buts its not long before you put on a bee suite and venture into our Honeyworks apiary with our experienced beekeepers. Experience the magic of looking inside a beehive, watching the bees at work and trying to find the Queen in amongst the thousands of worker bees.

Our next Taster Day is on Sunday 12th May, weather permitting.

Experience Days

Our Experience Day is aimed at beekeepers who are already familiar with beekeeping and maybe have their own hive in their garden.

The day can be tailored to meet individuals, focusing on specific topics they want to find out more about, such as diseases and treatments, or gain some experience of say a particular technique such as queen rearing or maybe even how to extract honey.

Experience days can be run on an individual basis or  in small groups if requirements & topics allow.

Mentoring

We are looking to offer a number of mentoring days in 2019, based around specific topics throughout the season, watch out for dates and topics. However, if you would just like time with an experienced beekeeper in our apiary either on a 1:1 basis or in a small group, focused on your specific requirements then please contact us via the website and we can discuss options and dates.
