Wat je gaat doen

We'll start with a half hour presentation talking about the bees themselves and the details of how the hives operate as well as a break down of all the tools and equipment that we will be using throughout the demonstrations. After that we suit up and head into the yard for the next hour. We'll take you to our hives, open one of them up and do a full breakdown of what's inside as well as run through our typical routine for that time of year, be it inspecting the health of the hive or locating the queen. Giving everyone a detailed look into a day in the field for beekeepers for that time of year. For our final half hour, we will return to the farm and walk through the process of extracting honey from the frames, such as uncapping and spinning, and winter prep.

I'm co-founder of The Bee Spot, beekeeping for 3 years and running 60 hives! Selling our product led to opportunity to educate people who are curious about bees and so we decided to open our farm, develop an interactive and fun introduction to the hives and bees to share their importance. after 30 years of supply chain and customer service management mostly in the food industry, came across bees, fell in love! I took a ton of training, volunteered at one of the largest suppliers in canada, got involved with local and provincial beekeeping organization and have an on-going mentor.

We'll be touring or own farm and bee yard right in Tamworth Ontario. We have a 32 acre field covered in a vast variety of colorful wildflowers. Our bee yards are near the back of our property just by the treeline. It's right in the middle of a tiny rural town with lots of charm.

I have never tried anything like this before and Nadine made the whole learning experience really fun! Nadine is incredibly knowledgeable and I learned so much from her! I would absolutely do this again!

If you are curious about beekeeping, or just bees in general, the folks at the Bee Spot are truly lovely to deal with. The passion and commitment to bee culture is evident. They have a small hive collection and are very happy to both show and have you suit up and take part in exploring their hives in a very informative and meaningful way. If you are cautious around these incredibly intelligent and industrious creatures they easily put you at ease and are so generous with their time answering questions and showing you how hive life unfolds and what is involved in keeping their hives and bees healthy, productive, and processing the honey as minimally as possible to keep all the delicious goodness as true to it's natural form as possible. They let you taste the honey at the end as a sweet finale! I had a fantastic experience and can't imagine others would enjoy this experience any the less! Hooray Bee Spot!

Jeremy and Gord wasted no time getting down to the details of their operation, explaining the structure of the hives and offering some insight into the lives of the bees. They were always ready to answer our many questions. The setting is beautiful, in a meadow of local wild flowers.

Our experience with The Bee Spot was excellent! The location is beautiful, the hosts were extremely knowledgable and personable and we had a great time learning about bees. I would recommend anyone who has any interest in nature visit The Bee Spot. I also think it’s important for people to have this insight into bees instead of fearing them. They are so important for our planet!

What a great experience! Beekeepers Josh and Gord welcomed us warmly and told us all about their bee hives, the bees, and what goes into producing the honey that we enjoy. We got to see the tools they use and the different parts of a hive, and heard about what goes into keeping bees. Then we suited up in full beekeeping suits that covered us head to toe, and headed out into the field to see the hives. Josh and Gord opened up a hive and layer by layer, showed us the inner workings. They handled the racks so gently that the bees stayed calm and weren't aggressive at all. It was fascinating! After the tour was done we tried some white honey made by The Bee Spot bees. I've never had white honey before and it was delicious! Josh and Gord were extremely low key about selling their products, and had some honey, beeswax candles and beeswax wraps on display. I appreciate being able to buy products directly from the people that work to make them, and that honey really was good, so I picked up a bit of everything! My husband and I really enjoyed our tour at The Bee Spot. This activity is good for anyone who wants to know more about where their food comes from, or is interested in biology and bees. Suitable for ages 8 and up. And don't forget to wear closed toe shoes.
