When we arrived at Porteath Bee Centre we couldn’t ask for a more bee-autiful day; the sun was shining and the day was as sweet as honey. We were introduced to the bee experts who taught us all we wanted to know about bees. They really are busy bees! Did you know Queen bees really are treated like royalty? Queen bees rarely leave the hive, are waited on by worker bees for their entire life and get to enjoy a special food called ‘royal jelly’. Now that’s what we call the bees knees. Afterwards, there was no bumbling around, we had to work like worker bees – we made a candle out of real honey produced by the bees themselves. We also had a taste of the sweet honey, it was un-bee-lievably tasty!
