What you'll do

Enjoy tasting honey's & open an active Bee Hive.

Bee keeping is weather dependent. Assuming mother nature has given us a nice, warm day we'll visit an Apiary in a suitably scenic location. After explaining bees 101, we'll put on bee suits and gloves - and work an active bee-hive. You can hold a frames covered with 100's of bees. We'll find Drones, Workers, Brood and hopefully find the Queen Bee! Then enjoy tasting some delicious kiwi honeys.
