Interested in honey bees and beekeeping but are not quite sure if it is for you?
This is not a how-to course, but an hour long 'is this for you' introduction to beekeeping.
At Backed By Bees we know the first real step to beekeeping is making sure that you can function around busy honey bee colonies. The group of curious beekeepers will be taken into the Backed By Bees main bee yard where an expert beekeeper will open a honey bee colony, allow you to handle honey bee frames, interact with the honey bees and see the internal workings of a colony. While in the yard, you will be introduced to all the sights, sounds and smells that roughly 2 million honey bees have to offer.
Become the beekeeper for the day and see if beekeeping is really for you!
*You will be around live honey bees. Stinging is always a possibility. Wear closed toed shoes and well fitted clothing. Protective equipment will be available for all who wish to dawn it. Also, best to avoid bananas on the day of the experience....any idea why? Find out from the beekeeper!
