Au programme

Love honey? Love bees? Would you like to taste honey literally flowing out the back of the hive? Join a passionate backyard beekeeper on this unique experience and collect honey from a hive straight into a jar to take home with you. The Flow Hive, developed in Australia has been the first major change in beekeeping for almost 170 years. The idea of "honey on tap" has proven irresistible. We start with your arrival at my home in Bowral and, after a quick look over my hives (from a distance) we'll start with a honey tasting (with morning tea of fresh scones). I like to think of it as "tasting the seasons" as I guide you through honey taken from the same hives at different times of the year. This leads beautifully into an overview of a colony and the lifecycle of a honey bee, queen and drones. We'll then "suit up" in a professional sting proof suit and collect leaves and bark to light a smoker. After this, we will go to the hives and we'll open one of my Flow Hives and the process of doing a standard inspection. As part of this activity we will harvest honey using the flow system directly into a jar. You will need fully enclosed shoes to be able to do this. Also, keep in mind that we "smoke" the hive and you will end up smelling of eucalyptus smoke.

I am a keen beekeeper and got my first hives at school. I love my bees for a whole bunch of reasons, from environmental impacts, through to the fascinating way they communicate and interact. And they make awesome honey! The Flow Hive has been a wonderful development and I got my first Flow Hive not long after they launched the idea. I am a strong advocate for inclusion, the rights of LGBTIQA people and acknowledge that these experiences take place on Gundangara lands and that sovereignty was never ceded.

An amazing experience!! Loved every second and had such a great time hanging out with Hamish and his bee friends 🐝 Learnt so much about the honey process and how crazy it is that the honey can turn out differently depending on the time of year. Hamish is so knowledgeable!

It’s not often that a course not only exceeds your expectation but you find yourself lingering at the end because you’ve met such an interesting person! Hamish has a passion for his subject which is infection, a breadth of knowledge that only comes from practicing a craft for decades and an ability to share all of the above in a way that is accessible to complete beginners. We learnt so much and left full of enthusiasm and confidence to set up our own hive! 🐝🍯
