Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Saturdays $99 per person. Any other day $150 (due to low numbers on weekdays). Airbnb has been glitching showing other currencies, check your currency is set to AUD.

We'll be going into a hands-on beekeeping fun and educational experience. After an introduction and safety lesson, you will be taught how to be a beekeeper including topics such as tools and equipment, bee life cycles and roles, pests and diseases, Queen rearing. Flow hive Q & A. How to merge a hive, how to move a hive, how to catch a swarm, how to split a hive.

Following the theory lesson, a quick break and another chance for tea/coffee. In the second half, we will get suited into the protective clothing and start the hands-on part. We will first light the smokers (to make the bees docile) then I will demonstrate opening up a beehive for an inspection.

Then it is over to you, it's your turn to open up a beehive, pull out the frames one by one and try to find the queen, check she is laying eggs properly, check there are no pests or parasites attacking the hive on the inside and check the bees are building the comb straight.

Tastings of various honey.

PROTECTIVE SUITS PROVIDED

I only have adult-sized bee suits and holding beehive frames requires some strength, therefore children under 12 cannot participate. Any younger than 12 must provide own suit, contact me first and make a special arrangement

I booked this experience as part of my itinerary for the Hunter Valley. The timing of this activity is perfect as it ends at 2pm and by the time you reach the Hunter Valley, you’ll be on time for hotel check in. The session was extremely educational, which I really enjoyed. It was a bonus that it was a private session as the only attendants on the day was my husband and I. I was really scared of the bees at first, but now that I’m home, I kind of miss the bees. In addition to the interactive side of being allows to inspect the bees hives, we were offered a tasting of Martin’s homemade honey and mead of versions flavours which was delicious. Overall, I highly recommend this experience regardless if you plan on becoming beekeeper yourself or not.

This beekeeping course was very informative and interactive! Martin was always open to questions and taught us all about the different aspects of beekeeping while keeping the experience fun and humorous.

I purchased this as a gift for my parents and they said it was one of the best gifts they’ve ever received! They couldn’t speak highly enough of Martin’s kindness and knowledge of bees. They said they had an incredible day and that ‘it was easily worth twice the price!’.

We had a great time at Martin's course. It was very informative, well paced and there was good supervision during the hands on part of the course. We feel like we have enough information now to get started. 🐝

Martin’s beekeeping course was the highlight of our little holiday! What an experience! My partner and I went in extremely nervous but Martin is so welcoming, knowledgable and reassuring that we felt much more comfortable by the end of it. Martin had a wealth of knowledge, and you can tell the information he gives you has been personally tried and tested. We have already recommended this experience to our friends and family. Thank you Martin!
