What you'll do
After introductions, we'll talk about how bees live, work and make honey. You'll learn about the importance of the bees for the planet. This is a hands-on experience where you will put on a bee suit and have an up close look at the hives. You'll hold a frame of bees and identify workers and drones and try to find the Queen bee. Afterwards, we'll have lunch made with ingredients grown fresh in our organic garden and in the end we'll taste different types of honey.

Where you'll be
Your adventure is in my family's farmhouse. We'll be at the farm's courtyard while we talk how bees live and work together, then we’ll suit up and walk over to the apiary which is about 300 metres away. After the visit to the apiary will head back to the courtyard, and have a farm-to-table lunch.
