DESCRIPTION

OUR #1 VISITOR EXPERIENCE

Daily, 9.45am and 3.00pm 

Duration :  60 minutes

Includes :  A jar of fresh honey for every participant, featuring your own personalised label. (valued at $15).

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 run over the history of the Beehives we use in New Zealand, and explain how a colony builds honey comb, converts nectar into honey and they operate seamlessly as a colony within each hive.  We’ll also cover the basics of propolis, beeswax and Royal Jelly – and how these amazing compounds are produced by bees. Then you will begin working 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.
