Yummy Honey

We all know bees are busy, but do you know why? Join beekeeper Ged on his Buckinghamshire honey farm to learn all about how honey is made.

Come with us as Ged takes us on a tour of his honey farm. We’ll take a close look inside a hive and find out about the different kinds of bee that live there.  

 

Key learning points are:

  • Why bees are so important to our environment
  • What happens to the nectar inside the hive
  • How bees turn nectar into honey.
  • How honey from the hive is gathered and processed
