Warre Natural Beekeeping course
21st October @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm€90
We keep bees in Warre hive which is a French system inspired from the traditional skep beekeeping. The bees are provided with empty boxes and they self build their own natural combs. The bees are selected and we take the surplus honey leaving plenty of stores for the winter. The honey combs are crushed and pressed which gives a unique product. We keep around 18 colonies of Irish Black Bees, the native Irish subspecies.
