Beechworth Honey is passionate about helping save Australia’s honeybees – these amazing creatures pollinate two-thirds of our agricultural produce and our fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, BUT they are under threat.
As part of our Bee Cause, we encourage you to learn how to become a hobby beekeeper in our in-depth, hands-on beekeeping class. Light up the smoker and open up a live beehive in-field as you learn from an experienced beekeeper all about managing honeybees, collecting and bottling your very own honey, and how honeybees ensure your gardens, fruit and vegetable patches flourish.
Light lunch, transportation and detailed notes included.
Closed shoes/flat boots that cover ankles must be worn. We recommend bringing a hat and water bottle. Weather dependent, you may require wet weather gear (E.g. jacket). Please don’t wear deodorant or perfume with strong smells as it can upset the bees.
