Many thanks to all members who donated honey to the Taste of Honey stall at the Honiton Show in 2016. Your donation of honey is very important to us and hope it helped towards selling your honey at the Honey Sales stall. Having tasted a delicious honey with their scone and cream, people tend to ask for that honey when buying a jar to take home.
Members are again invited to supply honey products for this year's show on Thursday 3rd August 2017. Other bee products will be welcome.
Today was the last day of this year's Beginners' Basic Beekeeping Course which brought together 37 people of all ages with one thing in common... bees! The course itself started at the beginning of the year in January with evening sessions followed by two practical sessions at our Exeter apiary. The course was led by David Packham, Seasonal Bee Inspector, who provided all the coursework for the budding beekeepers that was based on the BBKA's Basic Assessment Syllabus.
