Wat je gaat doen

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.

My girlfriend and I stumbled on this by chance, and both being interested in bees but not really knowing much about them, this seemed like and interesting day out. But the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home, and Dafydds knowledge and passion ensures there was never a dull moment, it was fascinating. He took us through every aspect of bee life before we got suited up. Seeing the hives and watching the bees at close range was superb, and the whole experience was fantastic, probably the highlight of our holiday. I can’t recommend this experience highly enough. Thank you, Dafydd... Ian & Christine

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience! Daf is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We would recommend this to anyone and can't wait to return for a beginner's course!

Much better experience than I was expecting. I knew it would be informative. But it never got boring, and it never feels like you have to know about it to understand. And he doesn’t make you feel stupid by asking silly questions. Which I did often! We came for the experience as it’s something we would never ever do. And we have learnt so much. I wanted to try and overcome some of my fear of bees, which I think I have done, and I wanted to learn what I can do to help the bees and look after them not only in my garden but in what I buy in my weekly shop. Not one question was left unanswered! Loved every minute of it! Perfect birthday present for my boyfriend as something different.
