A hands-on, fun and educational experience for all ages. Great for families. Learn about Bees and Bee Hives, then get sticky with this interactive, hands-on activity. Uncap, spin, filter and bottle your very own jar of fresh honey to take away with you - featuring your own personalised honey label - valued at $15.00.

STAGE 1 Beehives and Bee Behavior

Your Beekeeper will quickly run over why Beehives are designed the way they are, and explain how a colony builds honey comb, converts nectar into honey and they operate seamlessly as a colony. Then we will provide you with a fresh frame of honey.

STAGE 2 Uncapping & Spinning

Remove the ‘capping’ from your frame to expose the delicious honey underneath. Then we will spin your frame in a powered extractor. Watch through the clear lid to see your honey flying out under the centrifugal force. Ready to pour out the ‘honey gate’.

Stage 3 Filtering & Bottling

Open the 'Honey Gate' and watch your honey pour into a filter to remove any beeswax. Once filtered, its ready to bottle. You can lick the honey off your fingers now, and get your photo taken for your personalized honey label.
