Bee Wise Garden Walk is a family owned 5 acre educational nature walk with particular emphasis on the honey bee. It is located just outside the village of Kilmessan, approximately half way between the Seat of the High Kings at the Hill of Tara and Trim Castle.
Our produce is hand crafted in small batches and is traceable from our own honey bees to the honey pot, 100% natural. We offer a range of spring, summer, Ivy, cut comb, soft set and section honey. All have distinct flavours depending on the flowers the bees have worked.
We have developed a nature walk to show people the flowers, shrubs and trees which the honey bee works to collect the nectar for the different flavoured honey. There are information points and a children’s activity trail to educate you throughout the walk. There is an observation hive onsite to show the bees at work in the hive. Talks can be arranged for group bookings or on Open Days on the life of the bees.
Demonstrations are provided for group bookings or on Open Days on the extraction of honey from uncapping to spinning (glass spinner) to allow for a full visual of the honey process.
