Have you ever wondered what goes on in a beehive? This is the experience you've been waiting for!

This taster day at angleseybees is designed specifically for anyone curious enough to want to learn more about the life of honey bees and the beekeeper’s year before making the decision to attend a beginners course.
After discussing the aspects below, we will kit up in protective clothing and amble out to the apiary where you will get to see inside a real working beehive and get some hands-on experience of handling the bees under supervision. This makes a great photo opportunity!

Why keep bees? – it’s not just about the honey!
Bee hives and where bees live
Life cycle of honey bees
Protective clothing and using a smoker

After seeing the bees at work, to conclude, you will learn about the beekeeper's year and try your hand at a blind honey tasting experience so that you can compare genuine locally produced artisan honey with imported supermarket honey.

I am more than happy to discuss hosting bespoke experiences to larger groups and families with young children on other dates. message me to discuss options.

I am the founder of angleseybees and specialise in delivering training and mentoring for those interested in beekeeping including complete novices. Having been a biology teacher for 20 years and a research scientist before that has equipped me to deliver these events. The events are hosted at my home where I have a dedicated training apiary and training facility. I recently delivered a talk to a beekeeping association and published two articles in a beekeeping periodical. I am passionate about honey bees and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm with others.

A fascinating and inspiring, half-day, introductory course on bee-keeping, in a beautiful, rural setting. Dafydd and Dawn have created a really informative and practical visit for anyone interested in the science of honey bees and the importance of bees to the world. We loved it. It was great to meet Dafydd and Dawn, and Fudge (their dog) and the ducks. Thank you so much and we hope to meet you again.

We went for a new experience and left feeling like we’d spent a few hours learning new things from our friends. Love of nature, habitat (and bees of course!) shines through and really makes this a treat. Interesting, informative, involving… thought provoking (you will see why). Just a very pleasant experience while learning a lot in a short time about our amazing honey bees. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing time. Dafydd and Dawn were incredible hosts. They were so informative and happy to answer our many many questions. They really went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed the experience and were also very helpful in recommending further activities. All in all this experience was as enjoyable as it was informative and we definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys bees or just has an interest in them.
