Full day

This experience will have you buzzing with excitement, on a full day beekeeping experience for one with More Bees Please Based in Sheffield.

Spend a day with David and his busy bees.

With a mixture of talks and hands-on sessions, you’ll learn everything there is to know about starting out in beekeeping. The programme is split into several different sections so you’re not bombarded with too much bee talk at once. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day. In essence, this is a fun and interactive, yet laid-back look at beekeeping.

Starting with the bee basics, you’ll hear about bee biology, how colonies work, and communicate (truly fascinating stuff!) and their life cycle. Then it’s time to take a look at the life of a beekeeper. You’ll be shown what looking after bees entails, what types of hives there are and how you harvest honey. You will also discover how honey is made and how important pollination is.

Indeed, this Sheffield beekeeping workshop goes one step further, by showing you just which flowers and plants you should grow to attract your bees, And of course, on a warm summer’s day you’ll see the bees flying from their hive to bring back pollen and nectar. It’s honey making happening live in front of your eyes!

Dressed up in your beekeeper suit, you’ll also get to see what goes on inside the busy hive, as these full-day workshops include plenty of interaction with the bees. You’ll be shown how to lift the lids and how to spot the queen bee.

There will also be time to taste the honey produced by David’s bees, and it is quite simply delicious. David will tell you why and how different types of honey exist!
