Virgin Experience Days Beekeeper for a Day at The Good Life Project Farm

Bees are some of the most important parts of the earth’s thriving ecosystem, despite their relative tininess - there’s a world to discover about these small and stripy workers, and you can explore it all over a day of beekeeping, farm touring and organic refreshments too with this Beekeeper for a Day at The Good Life Project Farm.

Originally built in 1850, The Good Life Project Farm is an organic haven filled with plants and trees all placed to provide pollen for the bees that bring the gardens to life. You’ll get up close to these busy buzzers and their food with a guided tour of the gardens and an explanation of the planting schemes designed to work wonders for pollinators, before donning your beekeeping equipment for the day (provided by BJ Sherriff) and taking a look at the beehives and how they work.

You’ll see the bees busy doing what they do best, including the hive’s queen, bee babies and possibly a waggle dance too, while you help inspect the hives, take photos and record video as part of your beekeeper duties. You’ll also have a chance at bottling and sampling some honey, complementing the day’s unlimited organic refreshments and wood-baked pizza lunch before taking home a packet of bee-friendly seeds and your own jar of the sticky stuff.

The experience is available on selected dates from April to September 2018.

We recommend you book at least eight weeks in advance to ensure that dates are available. All bookings are subject to availability.

Please allow 4 hours 30 minutes for the full experience.
