During a fun and educational visit, the facilitator first presents how the life of bees in the hive is organized.
Then, you will discover the essential role of the bee in our environment with the help of the "theater of nature".
Then, observe the bees in complete safety in the glass hives. Then comes the most spectacular moment, when the host opens a beehive behind glass. Thanks to a macro video system, we get inside the cells!
At the honey house, you will attend a demonstration of honey extraction. And to end this journey well, we offer you a tasting of honey and homemade products.
