Animal experience hosted by Nadine

Includes equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We'll start with a half hour presentation talking about the bees themselves and the details of how the hives operate as well as a break down of all the tools and equipment that we will be using throughout the demonstrations. After that we suit up and head into the yard for the next hour. We'll take you to our hives, open one of them up and do a full breakdown of what's inside as well as run through our typical routine for that time of year, be it inspecting the health of the hive or locating the queen. Giving everyone a detailed look into a day in the field for beekeepers for that time of year. For our final half hour, we will return to the farm and walk through the process of extracting honey from the frames, such as uncapping and spinning, and winter prep.

I'm co-founder of The Bee Spot, beekeeping for 3 years and running 60 hives! Selling our product led to opportunity to educate people who are curious about bees and so we decided to open our farm, develop an interactive and fun introduction to the hives and bees to share their importance. after 30 years of supply chain and customer service management mostly in the food industry, came across bees, fell in love! I took a ton of training, volunteered at one of the largest suppliers in canada, got involved with local and provincial beekeeping organization and have an on-going mentor.

The experience Nadine provides is truly a wonderful one. She showed us many of the hives, and taught us a lot about the apiary, hives, responsibilities of the different bees in the hive and their behaviours and much about the Queen's. A truly wonderful hands on experience, not to be missed!

This was a really cool and enjoyable experience. I wasn't sure what to expect or how I would even feel doing something like this. I'm usually not as bothered by bees or other flying insect but my gf is a lot more. But with Nadine's guidance and handling of the hive everybody was very calm including the bees xD . I learned new things about bees and the inner workings of the hive. I don't think I'd ever be able to get such knowledge or hands on experience without something like this offered. Nadine is also very friendly and easy going. I highly recommend it. Check it out.

We had such an amazing time with our host and the bees! I learned so much and I'll never forget putting on the bee suit and meeting the honey chefs!

We learned so much throughout the entire time we were there, Nadine has an easy conversational way of teaching and a genuine passion and curiousity for bees that’s contagious. All in all we had a bee-utiful time with a million bees!

We LOVED our experience at the Bee Spot! Nadine is a joy to interact with. She shared a lot of information about the bees before teaching us how to suit up so that we could go open the hives together. She was very knowledgeable and skilled in beekeeping. I would absolutely recommend this experience, and will likely come back sometime with other friends and family!

Had a great time learning about bees and their importance in our ecosystem. Nadine was very helpful with a ton of insight on honey making and general maintenance of the bees. Was a very fun and educational outing!
