Take A Tour
Beekeeper Experience Tours
Ever driven past beehives in a paddock and wondered what happens inside? Or maybe while you're enjoying a thick layer of honey on your toast you've wondered how many bees it took to make it? Or maybe you just love good food and are keen to know more about the process it takes to bring it from hive to jar?
Our beekeeping experiences are a perfect addition to your foodie trip to the Wairarapa - bringing you a family friendly activity that's perfect for all ages. Our group numbers are capped at six to make sure you enjoy a fast paced, all you need to know about bees and honey in a 2 hour window!
What you'll get to see will vary depending on the season and weather. At a minimum you can expect to see under the lid and observe the real workers, we'll find the queen bee, learn about the traceability systems we have in place and then enjoy a full honey tasting session at the end. You might even get to spin your own honey to take honey with you!
Our tours leave at 10am most mornings, but make sure you book so we can ensure we've got our favourite beekeeper Alex onsite and ready to take you on an adventure.
Health and Safety: Wearing closed shoes is a must. If you feel anxious around bees, the best advice is to wear an extra layer, you'll be well protected in our bee suits, but long pants and tops will always protect you further, and plus - it's much easier to get into your bee suit in shorts or pants than it is in a skirt or dress! There's always the chance of getting stung so if you know you're allergic please let us know before you head out so we can ensure we've got measures in place to keep you safe.
