Quince Honey Farm
What a great day we had the Quince Honey Farm!
We met with Class 1 from Kings Nympton School. First we learnt about beekeeping and bee hives. We had a go at making our own wax cells with play dough, we used our fingers, not mouths like the bees! We looked at how honey is taken from the cells and spun to release it. We tasted different honey, we even found out there is a honey made by bees after they eat aphids- we didn't try that one! We made some candles out of wax and planted sunflower seeds- bees love them! After a 'treasure hunt' looking for different plants and ornaments in the gardens we had time to play in the 'hive'. We loved running around with our new friends from Kings Nympton!
