Warre Beekeeping Course (please check availability beforehand)


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 colones of Irish Black Bees, the native Irish subspecies of Apis Mellifera Mellifera.
