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.

Nadine

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.

What's included

Equipment
We'll be providing vented bee suits, gloves and beekeeping equipment for the hive demonstrations.

Where you'll be

We'll be touring or own farm and bee yard right in Tamworth Ontario. We have a 32 acre field covered in a vast variety of colorful wildflowers. Our bee yards are near the back of our property just by the treeline. It's right in the middle of a tiny rural town with lots of charm.
