Beekeeping Experience Days
James & Jade look forward to welcoming you to our Beekeeping
Experience Day 2024 at Little Walterstone Farm Gower!
Get ready to embark on a fascinating journey into the world of bees and discover the
wonders of beekeeping firsthand.
Imagine yourself surrounded by the gentle hum of bees, the sweet scent of honey, and the vibrant colours of blooming flowers. This unique experience will not only provide you with a deeper understanding of these incredible creatures but also allow you to actively participate in the art of beekeeping.
LWF beekeepers James & Jade will guide you through every step of the process, ensuring your safety and providing you with valuable knowledge about the importance of bees in our ecosystem. You will have the opportunity to wear protective gear and get up close and personal with the bees, observing their behaviour and learning about their intricate social structure.
During the day, you will learn how to handle the bees with care and watch how James or Jade inspects a hive. Our beekeepers will share their expertise on topics such as bee biology, hive management, and the challenges facing bees in today's world.
Not only will you gain practical skills, but you will also have the chance to taste the fruits of your
labour. We will indulge in a honey tasting session, where you can savour the unique flavours and
aromas of different types of honey produced by our bees.
This experience is not only educational but also a chance to connect with nature and appreciate
the vital role bees play in pollination and the production of our food. You will leave with a newfound respect for these wonderful and important creatures.
