What you'll do

We deliver this experience on our working honey farm and this is a true hands on experience to share with you the process of being a beekeeper and how we produce some of the best honey in the World. We have around 200 operational hives with up to 50000 resident bees per hive at any given time. You will be suited up in a beekeeping outfit and then head out to the hives to learn and see what happens inside the hive. We will share with you the workings of an operational productive hive, see the smoking process, open their home and check out the busy bees doing their thing. We will look out for the Queen Bee and the different stages of development. You will get a great insight as to what they do with Honey, Pollen and Propolis within the hive, hold a frame of bees and touch the honeycomb. This is great photo opportunity! Once we conclude the tour we will head to our shed where you will see the how the extraction process is set up and observe how it works, then taste some of the best honey in the world! We have up to six varieties and you will be able to try them all! This is a fun, educational and unique experience where you will learn about these magnificent creatures!

Shawn

I have lived on Kangaroo Island for the last 20 years and have always had a passion for getting outdoors and enjoying open spaces. I started as a beekeeper when I moved to the island as a hobby, and have loved every minute of it. It all started with one hive as part of being self sufficient and sustainable living. Once I realised just how amazing bees are, their need in the environment and the products that they produce - I started my journey to became a commercial bee keeper and now sell our Honey, Beeswax and Propolis around Australia.

What's included

Food
Up to 6 honey tastings
