In Swedish you can also take a guided tour with our beekeeper or take our course -Beekeeper for a day.


Bee Exhibition and Display Hive

In the old barn we have the exhibition where you can learn about the life of a bee.

There is also information material och posters you can read to learn more. If you like you can watch a short dvd about bees and beekeeping.

If you would like to look closer at the bees you can visit the display hive. The front of the hive is placed up towards the woods behind a fence so that we humans do not disturb the bees going in and out of the hive.  On the back of the hive we have placed doors that you can open and look at the bees working behind the glass. Can you find the Queen? When you have looked for a while you must remember to close the doors again. The bees are happiest in the dark.
