TAKING 'THE STING'
Whether you're a beekeeping enthusiast, a nature lover, or simply someone looking for a unique and educational experience, our Beekeeping Experience is the perfect adventure for you.
Join us at our stunning orchard near Storrington, West Sussex.
We’re nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park and it’s the perfect place to be transported into the magical world of beekeeping.
What to expect..
Led by our experienced beekeeper, you will learn about all types of bees and pollinators, and the vital
role they play in our ecosystem.
Then we’ll take a look at the various equipment used in both modern and ancient beekeeping.
Using an observation hive we’ll discuss the lifecycle of the honeybee, how and why they make honey,
and why bees swarm.
Get hands on with a Hive Inspection.
You'll suit up in protective gear and get up close and personal with the bees, getting hands-on experience with beekeeping techniques. Together we’ll undertake a hive inspection using all the knowledge learnt earlier in the day. You’re guaranteed to find the Queen!
And of course, no beekeeping experience would be complete without tasting some of our delicious,
fresh-from-the-hive honey. You'll get a chance to sample a variety of honey flavours and learn about
the unique characteristics of each one.
Our experience includes a beautiful gift pack to take home.
Morning experiences include a breakfast bagel & afternoon experiences include tea & cake. All sourced locally and showcasing the best Sussex produce. Vegetarian & gluten free options available.
Experiences are limited to small groups and everyone will enjoy quality time with the bees.
