- 2 observation hives for use in demonstrations.

We have recently acquired a Porta-cabin on site (wired for electricity) to augment our original storage shed. It will also be ideal for carrying out grafting ( queen rearing) and giving demonstrations of extracting honey.
Plus of course 11 colonies in the association apiary. These are a mixture of National, Commercial and WBC hives with associated supers and section crates so that beginners can assess them all.
The association produces National Nuc’s (nucleus hive),weather permiting, which can be sold to beginners at reduced rates. Any surplus nuc’s can be sold at commercial rates. Please contact Gerald Williams for further information.
