About the event

Manchester Honey Company will be offering Beekeeper taster days at our Apiary in Sale Animal Sanctuary this year. The 3 hour events will run in both an AM and PM session and are specifically designed for bee lovers who would like the opportunity to learn more about these fascinating insects. We'll start the session with a quick recap about Honeybees in our onsite class room and then head out to inspect some of the hives: You'll get the opportunity to learn about:

  • The lifecycle of a honey bee.
  • The workings of a hive and the different type's of bee inside.
  • How honey is produced and how taste varies between location (you'll get chance to try all our honey!)
  • A chance to hands-on with a colony inspection and see the queen (if you can spot her!)

All protective clothing will be provided. You'll need to bring a pair of wellies.

Please note: The minimum age for this session is 16 years.
