A beekeeper’s Year is spent with one eye up to the sky because many activities are weather dependant. THEREFORE, there may be occasions when your experience day is postponed due to bad weather. If the rain is constant the bees will not fly, opening the hive on a day like this will just make them stressed and bad tempered so should be avoided in all but the most urgent of circumstances.
Each session last approximately two hours but with a bit of preparation at the beginning and question time at the end, you will need to allow 2 hours 30 minutes. You will need to arrange your own transport. Please arrive with plenty of time for car parking, getting changed etc.
Everything is provided, except your footwear and refreshments. Please bring a snack, a drink and some sensible footwear. Wellies are good, as are rigger boots, hiking boots or old trainers and long socks. Bees have been known to sting ankles through socks so boots are the best.
If you are allergic to insect bites, please do not book onto Little House sessions. If you carry an Epipen please contact Kaye to discuss your special requirements.
