Opplevelse med dyr med Tim som vert

Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

On arriving at Mayfield Cottage we shall start (in the only appropriate way) with refreshments, tea, fresh coffee and pastries and an introduction to apiculture. We shall explore bee types and characteristics, pollination and reproduction.

It is important (and responsible) that matters which threaten polllinators are discussed and the steps necessary to protect the health and habitat of pollinators (it’s not too boring!).

We shall examine the components and function of the beehive. We shall look at a beehive (and differing hives) and their benefits and shortcomings to a novice. Depending on whats happening in the apriary an observation hive may be set up enabling the close examination of live bees without the limitations of a beesuit and veil.

Once we have familiarised ourselves with the first principles of the honeybee and it’s home we shall don our suits and gloves and make our way into the apriary. We shall take time to ensure we are carefully zipped up! We keep good natured bees, mostly of Buckfast strain.

We shall explore the products of the hive, honey, bees wax, propolis, pollen and all matters as to happy harvesting!
And then we shall have another well earned cuppa!

I’m an experienced beekeeper, having assisted with my father in his beekeeping since childhood. I’m completely passionate about beekeeping and love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm with beekeepers and novices alike. I am a member of the British Beekeeping Association. Our apiary (collection of beehives) is located in beautiful countryside, within the village of Dale Abbey. The hives are a variety of traditional Victorian hives and contemporary hives. I mentor a number of Apiarists and love introducing budding beekeepers to this vital and fascinating pastime.

We shall be in the garden apiary with wonderful views into the monastic valley and a medieval, thatched barn to the laneside. The apiary is a haven for ornithologists as the valley has Ravens (frequently flying overhead), Merlins and Hobby’s. We have a resident Tawny Owl in the tree above the apiary, frequently seen in daylight hours.

The ruin of the Abbey is within a 3 minute walk and an 11th century hermits cave within 10 minutes.

Our experience with Tim was special and unique, his knowledge about the subject was impeccable and such a lovely warm welcome into his home with delicious cake. I don't think we would have learned so much or enjoyed bee keeping with anyone else.

Truly wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Tim ensured we all felt very at home with a beautiful spread of cakes and tea after guiding us through the beekeeping process! We learnt a huge amount and even met his very friendly lambs to round off a thoroughly interesting afternoon.

My partner and I had a lovely time during the beekeeping experience. Tim was really friendly, and we instantly felt at ease. Excellent home made food was provided, and we got to learn a lot about bees and beekeeping. We got to go outside to the hives and, despite the weather, we felt like we got to spend a good amount of time looking at the various parts. Thank you very much Tim, it’s definitely spurred an interest in beekeeping!

Tim’s Course was very enjoyable and excellent value for money. He has a very good and long knowledge of bees and bee keeping and the course was very well structured between practical and academic knowledge. I shall certainly be getting some bees in the future and know I can rely on him to help me get started.

Tim was very knowledgeable and approachable. A great experience for wannabe beekeepers or people just interested in getting up and close to some bees.

I can not recommend Tim enough. Tim is very welcoming and made the group instantly feel at home. He has a very high level of knowledge of bee keeping and his passion shined through all day. This experience was above and beyond what I expected- I can’t believe how much I have learnt!
