Team Building Days

Join us for a Buzz-worthy Team Building Day

If you’re looking for a unique and memorable team-building opportunity for your business then Ivy Cottage Bees can help!

What to Expect:

The honeybee colony is a superorganism, that works together for the greater good of the hive; a powerful example of collaboration and cooperation to inspire your team.  At our main apiary your team will embark upon an unforgettable day of bonding, learning, and fun amidst the fascinating world of the honeybee. We will foster and develop your team's communication and collaboration skills and build their camaraderie whilst we immerse them in the wonders of this perfect pollinator.  In addition, the peaceful surroundings of farmland and the Flitch Way will provide your team with the perfect setting to switch off from the hustle and bustle of work life and live in the moment.


Each team building day is bespoke to your company and team and can include the following:

·       The opportunity for every member of your team to inspect our hives, handle frames of bees, and try to spot the Queen; all guided by one of our experienced beekeepers

·       A short talk about the theory of the honeybee and a typical beekeeper season

·       Honey tasting

·       Candle rolling

·       Quiz

·       Lunch and / or refreshments

·       Opportunity to purchase some of our beautiful handmade products at a discounted rate

Important Information

This is a working apiary, and there will be bees in the apiary and on their flight-paths to and from the nectar and pollen. Participants must wear long-sleeved clothing and bring wellies or sturdy ankle boots.  Ankles must be protected so socks should be able to tuck over trousers. We will provide you with a suitable, protective beekeeping suit and gloves but we cannot guarantee you will not get stung. We will of course do our best to ensure you don’t get stung!  If you have allergies to bee stings, unfortunately, these experiences are not suitable for you.  

Our apiary is sited in Little Canfield, and postcode and directions will be provided following a booking. There’s a short walk, across a field from the car-park and the terrain can be uneven in places so please take care.

Experience vouchers are non-refundable and all experiences are weather dependent. The organisers refuse the right to change the date of experiences if the weather conditions are inclement to inspecting and opening beehives. Should an experience be cancelled, the date will be rescheduled, and a new date offered.
