What we’ll do

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.

What else you should know

This experience is totally weather dependant, you can't open a bee hive on a cold day (under 12 degrees C). So keep an eye on the forecast, and book accordingly - your welcome to call me on 0219427808

For up to 4 pax I have a 4WD that's holds all my bee-keeping kit and is ideal for getting around on the farms where my hives are based.
