Standard suits are very similar to professional suits below, the main difference is in the hoods. Full-length, strong and comfortable, made from 100% cotton, with attached hood and elastic added to arms and legs. Leg and arms have an elastic loop to keep them extended while working. Zips on legs so you don’t have to remove boots when putting on or removing suit. Sizes based on height, assuming average build, are as follows. If a bit on the heavy side, go up a size. Smaller sizes available for kids, see entry below.
Honey is pure raw energy, produced from hundreds of thousands of flowers and tens of thousands of bees.
In this course, we'll suit up, collect honey frames and bring them into the shed for extraction. We'll go through uncapping, spinning, and filtering of the honey and explain the steps involved in rendering beeswax to produce exquisite hand made candles. We'll demonstrate how to do a health inspection and prepare your hives for winter. Finish with a tasting of honey and mead.
The course is ideal for anyone just starting in beekeeping or wanting to gain more experience and confidence looking after these fascinating creatures. Suitable for adults and older age children. Covers Langstroth, Warre, Top Bar and Flow Hives. It's not necessary to have previously taken the Art & Science of Beekeeping Course.
Starts at 9:00 and finishes at 3:00. Morning tea and lunch are included. We'll do the beekeeping in the morning when it's cooler.
