Be a beekeeper activity at Quince Honey Farm

Today Quince Honey Farm welcomed newest member Jason Parker to the team. He dived straight in this afternoon with our Bee a Beekeeper Experience.

“Day one in my new role a Quince Honey Farm and, after a friendly welcome from colleagues, I spent the afternoon with the public delving into the fascinating world of the honey bee.

We were given a guided tour of the facilities along with an in-depth talk on how Quince Honey Farm create their delicious honey products: which me and the rest of the group corroborated during the ever-popular tasting session!

The highlight for me though was definitely getting suited up and joining beekeeper Alex as we ventured out to meet the hive face to face. Whilst the experience of holding a beeswax frame containing over seven hundred honey bees on it is a little nerve-racking, it is something I would certainly recommend. Plus, Alex and the rest of the team were always on hand to answer any questions that I or anyone else put to them; making my first day at Quince Honey Farm both fun and informative.”

 

Our Bee a Beekeeper Experience runs every day over the summer at 3pm and 4pm. Speak with our friendly shop staff to book a slot.
