Junior Bee Keeper Experience

SORRY OUR PROGRAMS ARE CANCELLED June – July School Holiday Program  DUE TO COVID LOCKDOWN. 

We will reschedule these after the lockdown.

So if your kids want to understand bees, how they make honey and how honey gets out of the hive and into a jar, then these sessions will be for your family.

Specially designed for 4yr-10yr old children and parents to enjoy together.

Special opportunity to experience bees safely and taste fresh honey straight from our hives!
