Au programme

We will start our experience with a little background information about honey bees. Discuss the workers, queen and drones. I'll introduce you to some beekeeping equipment and explain what they are used for. Then we will don our space suits...I mean bee suits and venture into the apiary. We will open up a hive or two and explore the world inside. Together we will spot eggs, larvae and pupa, and maybe see a baby bee emerging from its cell for the first time. We will talk about how bees make honey and I'll explain the dances that the bees perform in order to communicate to each other. Finally, we will taste some delicious honey together. Refreshments included.
Other things to note
Experiences are available throughout the spring (weather dependant) and the summer. I still work in school three days a week but am happy to accommodate your visit on a day that is mutually agreeable. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my love for bees. I hold a DBS and am a qualified teacher

I have been keeping honey bees for 13 years and qualified as a teacher 7 years ago. I currently manage around 20 hives, but at one time had around 30. There is nothing I like more than combining my passion for bees and my second love, education. Come and join me in my home apiary and explore the world of the honey bee. I will combine practical and theoretical knowledge of starting, maintaining and falling in love with these resourceful little insects.

Destinations

We live on our family small holding overlooking the hills towards Penistone and Denby. From this little paradise, we will open up the hives and investigate the work that goes into making each jar of honey that you buy. You may also bump into our friendly flock of chickens as they wander free-range over our 30 acre homestead.

I bought this experience as a gift for my partner and he absolutely loved it. He was the only on booked on the day and Richard still went ahead with the event. Richard is thorough in what he teaches and shows, let my partner hold a drone bee, get up close and see the queen working her magic, and all questions were answered. My partner is now even more enthusiastic in starting a course on bee keeping and is looking to join a local group, all thanks to Richard and his vast knowledge and experience. Would highly recommend if you would like an introduction to bee keeping to get you enthusiastic about your journey!

Richard was friendly and personable, extremely knowledgable and informative without being “preachy”. Clearly passionate about bees, It was a really interesting way to spend a morning.

Not a great location , not what we expected at all . Richard was pleasant and knowledgeable. Would have liked to try the honey and been offered a jar to buy !
