This course is for those who just adore honey and want to understand exactly what is involved in the honey gathering and harvesting process, from flower to culinary delights.
Simon will guide you through all the stages of honey production culminating in jarring a portion of fresh liquid gold to take away with you.
You will learn about the fascinating world of the honey bee; what is needed to begin this rewarding pastime and get some guided interaction at the beehive. At the end of the day each participant will be able to taste the honey and then take some honey home with them.
Simon will also provide notes and give you advice on where you can find more information and Sherry will give you recipes so you can make other products using produce from the hive including beeswax candles, a simple cough/sore throat remedy, massage bars and lip balm.
