The Honey Farm
At this honey bee farm, which is the largest of its kind in Wales, you can see the amazing life of the honey bee behind glass. Go to the top floor in the old Chapel and see thousands of bees working in a variety of habitats. There are also man-made hives which open to show the mysteries of a bees’ nest. To enhance the ‘bee’ experience you can see an audio-visual presentation on these busy creatures.
The farm has wonderful displays of posters, photographs, beehives and other interesting items about beekeeping. You will gain a real insight into the fascinating world of the honeybee which is complemented with the knowledgeable staff who are more than willing to ask any questions posed.
You can also learn about the lives of ants as a tropical ant colony was installed in the exhibition in 1999. The exhibit shows how social organisation occurs in insects other than bees and wasps.
This educational venue can be enjoyed by all ages.
