Beekeeping Experience in Shrophsire

Learn all about beekeeping from expert keepers in Shropshire.

Price for 1 participant

This beekeeping introduction at the lovely Tiger Hall in Shropshire is a genuinely marvellous experience, and a really superb insight into the mysterious and fascinating world of beekeeping. You’ll spend a whole day at Tiger Hall with a professional beekeeper, who will show you the ropes and tell you the secrets of beekeeping… well some of them, anyway!

There are not so many beekeepers in the world. It’s one of life’s little jokes that human beings love honey so very, very much - but are often deathly afraid of bees. But the few who choose to work with these fascinating creatures every day, to walk among them and actually have the nerve to take their honey know that bees are not as scary as you might think (and definitely not when you are fully kitted out in a totally protective suit, which you of course will be!). Your beekeeper guide will tell you all sorts of fascinating things about bees, and you’ll learn just how important they are - not just for their sweet, yummy honey, but also for their amazing work ethic - they are actually responsible for pollinating around 1/6th of all the flowers in the world. During the day you’ll get up close and personal, with the rare opportunity to inspect a real, working beehive. You’ll also learn what to plant in your garden to attract more bees, which you will certainly want to do after this experience - and if all that weren’t enough, the icing on the cake (or is it honey on the toast in this case?) is that you’ll get to leave with a gift pack of honey from Tiger Hall as well as some recipes, and some samples of honey-based cooking.

This beekeeping experience is a really unusual and very interesting day, and if you’re looking for a really fantastic gift for someone who loves nature, honey, or just trying new things; this day at Tiger Hall just couldn’t be sweeter.

Age restriction - Minimum age 14. While it is very unlikely participants will be stung, it would be advisable that anyone with a severe allergy to bee stings did not attend.
