Honey

Members are again invited to supply honey products for this year's show.  Other bee products will be welcome.

When bringing your honey to the show to sell, why not consider putting an entry into one of the classes at the show.  There are lots of classes apart from honey and wax - cake making, photographs of interest to beekeepers - and much more.   The more entries there are the greater interest is generated for both the beekeepers and the general public.

If you would like to sell honey or other bee products at the Honiton Show, please complete the price list and return to Sylvia Guest (details on price list) to be received no later than Monday 22nd July 2018.

Taster Day

Start date

Would you like to find out what beekeeping is all about? Not sure how to get involved or how to get started?

Our Taster Day on Saturday 11th August 2018 is aimed at anyone interested in starting beekeeping or a chance to discover if this wonderful hobby is for you.

This one day introduction to beekeeping will be led by experienced local beekeepers and will cover:

  • Becoming a beekeeper
  • The life cycle of a colony of bees
  • Opening up a beehive and looking inside
  • Question and answer session

We will provide the beesuits.  You just need to bring your wellington boots and a pair of washing up gloves.

To book yourself onto the Taster Day, please contact our Branch Secretary. Places are limited so please get in touch early to avoid disappointment.

Please note that this is a weather permitting event.
