Final improvers meeting of the season – Sunday 26th September @ 2pm

The final meeting for Improvers (PBKA members only) at the Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre, Scolton Manor, will be on Sunday 26th September, commencing at 2pm.

N.B. In order to maintain social distancing, we will assemble initially outside the Honey Kitchen. Please ensure you bring a suitable face covering also. For further details on Covid regulations in Wales, please see this link.

The Honey Harvest – Lynfa Davies, Master Beekeeper on 5th August at 7.30pm

Join us for a webinar on Aug 05, 2021 at 7:30 PM BST.

Register now!

As it actually looks as if we will get a honey crop this year, Lynfa will deal with how to go about collecting your supers from the apiary, extracting the honey from the frames, and storing and bottling the honey. The webinar will be aimed at beginner beekeepers but hopefully there will be tips for everyone. The emphasis will be on the safe, clean, and hygienic preparation of honey, as many people will be offering their end product for sale. As hobby beekeepers, it is likely we are using our kitchens or utility rooms so there are a few things we need to consider to avoid any problems.

We hope you will be able to join us for this timely event.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Successful opening weekend of Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre

Friday 18th July 2014 marked the beginning of a very successful weekend for the PBKA, with the official opening of the ‘Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre’ at Scolton Manor by Edwina Hart AM, Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, together with the launch of Scolton’s own Victorian Walled Garden project.

Saturday featured an Open Day at the Centre as part of National Countryside Week and the ‘Bee Hive’ exhibition was overflowing all afternoon with members of the public coming in to watch the honey extracting demonstration in the ‘Honey Kitchen’ and live pictures from the ‘hive cam’! Members of the PBKA were also present to talk to the public and give hive inspection demonstrations at the ‘Pine Tree Apiary’.

On Sunday, we held another beekeeping training session at the apiary, which was followed as always with tea and Rosemary’s fabulous (and dare I say it? – famous) cakes, which she always keeps us generously supplied with!
