Cheese and Bees
Honey Month Class
19 May 2019
The Cheese Barrel and the Beekeepers from The House of Honey are pairing up to bring you a trio of delights.
The Art of beekeeping will be brought to you by Rupert and his apprentice beekeeper Matthew. They will direct you in some strong foundations to start your beekeeping hobby.
Rupert has been working with bees and collecting honey since he was a child and this is a wonderful opportunity to learn from his wealth of knowledge and experience. View a section of a hive, learn about the different roles each of the bees play and experience a honey extracting demonstration.
The experienced staff from the Cheese Barrel will then have fun pairing honey and cheese. There are so many combinations and they can’t wait to share them with you.
Lastly, you can enjoy a sample of Mead (Honey Wine). We will talk to you about Meads and their different styles whilst all happening in the wine basement!
Added extras allow you to visit Olive Farm Winery or The Cheese Barrel for lunch of a Honey Month Cheese Board.
*this will be a bee-free event - so don't bee worried if you are allergic, it will brie ok, honey! :)
