This visit to a live Honeybee colony is a chance to delve into their secret world. The Bee Farmer points out the stages of the bee's life cycle as we examine the hive. We will see the different castes of bees. We may even see the Queen...she is in there somewhere! We will see just how the bees arrange their world.  
 
You will handle the bees if you wish. We go at your pace. A hive full of bees can be intimidating. The visit lasts about two hours. 
 
The hive visit is a time to make memories. Dad's and daughter, Mums and Sons, Birthdays, Mothers day, Fathers days or the better half. Take lots of photos, ask lots of questions.
