School Packages

Real educational value in the heart of South Molton

50 Years of Bees!

With over fifty years of operation as a honey farm open to the public, we have decades of experience dealing with school groups.

Those years of feedback and experience have led us to develop what we believe is an excellent educational experience for children.

What Is Included?

With school trips, we strike a balance between fun and educational value. Between classroom time and hands-on experiences.


In the classroom

The children can learn from our genuine experts about subjects including:

  • The importance of bees
  • Environment and insects
  • Where food comes from
  • Mini-beasts
  • Bee conservation
  • Bee farming & care
  • The honey extraction process

If you have a specific (related) subject you would like covered, please let us know.
