Makiti Birds & Bees Bonanza

23 Sep 2016 - 25 Sep 2016

Beekeeping is a once in a lifetime experience. It is a sweet and exhilarating adventure where one gets to walk in the footsteps of Farmer Redbeard, the bee keeper, wearing a bee suite and practice the art of smoking the bees, retrieving the honeycomb and spinning out the honey.

One's taste buds explore the different types of honey produced in this area enjoyed on fresh homemade bread. This experience includes an introduction to beekeeping, and a welcome coffee.
