Honey Spinning - Spin Your Own Honey Experience

Join us for this sweet experience as you're guided through the process to producing your own jar of luscious honey!

Highlights

  • Become involved in honey making as we guide you through the extraction process.
  • Learn all about bees and honey with this fully interactive activity.
  • Earn your own jar of delicious honey to take home.

Perfect for families, our honey spinning experience offers sticky, delicious, educational fun for people of all ages!

Learn about why Beehives are designed the way they are, how bee colonies build honey comb and convert nectar into honey and how they operate seamlessly as a colony.

We’ll provide you with a frame oozing with exquisite natural honey which you’ll get to then load it into a honey extractor and wind the handle to make the frame spin, releasing the golden goodness from its waxy cell. Once enough has pooled at the bottom of the extractor you’ll get to open the Honey Gate and watch as your honey pours through a filter and into your very own jar.

Then all you have left to do label your jar and decide how’s best to eat your artisan honey!

Honey Heaven!

Had the best morning at Buzzstop in Frankton. We had never been here before and just happened across this on Bookme. What a find! The venue was simply gorgeous, the shop was overflowing with lovely goodies and the cafe looked fab. Nick was so generous and accommodating and he completely made the experience! The kids had an absolute blast and haven’t stopped raving about it. The adults were pretty stoked too. Thanks so much, would highly recommend to everyone visiting Queenstown.

Super amazing experience! Loved it!

It was such an amazing experience to learn all about how honey gets from a flower to the jar. We really enjoyed the hands on experience of extracting our own honey right from the comb and getting to know all the ins and outs of bees, bee keeping and honey from our expert tour guide and bee keeper Nick ! And getting to bottle and take home our own honey was just the sweet golden icing on the cake. Thank you so much can’t wait to come back over summer and do the bee experience !

Very informative and interesting... and delicious!

Our guide took us through a highly detailed tour of the process of making honey, from beekeeping, to how honeybees create and populate a hive, all the way to how the honey is formed in the honeycomb. It was a fascinating journey, and taught us a lot about the complexities of the process... and of nature! He was also patient and answered all of our questions with meticulous detail, with examples to help show and educate us. We definitely learnt a lot, and being able uncap some honeycomb was a satisfying (and delicious) experience. Overall, highly recommend as a unique experience if you want to quite literally take something from Queenstown away with you back home.
