For beekeeping experiences in Devon, then Quince Honey Farm offers introductions and instruction with lunch thrown in. It’s a full day experience that’s a complete introduction to the craft and maybe a useful introduction to beekeeping before committing to keeping bees yourself.
During the season the farm runs two experiences per month, usually on Thursdays and Saturdays, but you can check the dates on their website before you book.
As with a lot of these beekeeping days it’s aimed at beginners so protective gear is provided. Minimum age for taking part is sixteen.
