We really enjoyed the Beekeeping Experience Day. It was a very informative and reassuring introduction to beekeeping and built a confidence in handling the bees and the hives. We would certainly recommend this, even if you are not thinking of keeping bees, but just interested in their welfare and contribution to the world we live in. The hospitality was very good as well and the lunch provided was excellent. Thank you.
