Apiary Days

Club Apiary

Our hidden gem

In 2019 the club was fortunate enough to be able to establish its own apiary. 

This enables beginners to experience beekeeping on a range of hives, within a group, and on a regular basis.

The apiary provides the opportunity to learn by 'doing' as all beginners will be taught how to conduct a full hive inspection, as well as the basics like lighting a smoker.

The apiary is managed by one of our club members and members are welcome to attend by prior arrangement. we also host open club days at the site to welcome family members and those who may be interested in the the course.
