Honey Spinning - Spin Your Own Honey Experience

4.9
114

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.

Great experience and most recommend

We registered to this experience with our two daughters, Nick welcome us and show the hole making process of the honey with great and educated knowledge about the bees. We are very happy that we took this experience which was both enjoyed and educated. I recommend this experience for adults and children.

Fantastic hands-on experience

I absolutely loved my Honey Spinning experience. It was very educational and hands-on, and learn lot about honey bees, and the entire honey producing process. Nick was very knowledgeable and answered all questions that I had. The honey is delicious and I am glad I bought as many jars as I did. Can't get enough!

Can't stop buzzing?

Nick is a walking encyclopaedia on all things bees, and his passion truly shines through! Whether you do the Honey Spinning experience where you get to extract (and taste!) honey straight from the hive and pour yourself your own jar of uniquely-labelled honey to take home, or the Let's-Make-It experience, where you make your own honey soap, candle, lip balm and lotion, or the Be-A-Beekeeper experience where you wear the suit and get to meet the bees, you will Bee Happy with your choice. There are many activities in Queenstown; none are as educational and hands-on as these Buzzstop experiences. A perfect outing, whether it's for a date, a family affair, or with a bunch of friends. I've done all of the experiences, and am now starting to do them all over again. Oh, and there's also wine tasting as well as a fabulous cafe too. So fly on over to Buzzstop; you'll bee glad you did.

Honey Heaven

Really loved our Honey Spinning experience, it was great to see honeycomb up close and learn how to process everything to make beautiful multi-floral honey with Nick. We learnt so much about honey and the honey tasting was a fantastic chase to really notice the differences with various pollens. Loved every second and glad we are stocked up on yummy honey products! Big shout out to Nick who came in on his day off to host our class!!! Top bloke!
