One-Day Course – £145.00, Weekend Course – £235.00 (excluding accommodation)

This is a one-day or weekend course which takes you from complete novice to someone who has the knowledge to begin this wonderful and rewarding hobby.  It is also suitable for those who have had bees for a short time and wish to gain some more experience.

On this course we cover:

  • The life of the honeybee
  • How to set up an apiary
  • The beekeeping year
  • Equipment you will need
  • Working with the bees
  • Products of the hive.

The course includes a visit to the apiary to enable you to handle bees under supervision.

The weekend course consists of attending the normal one-day course and then on the Sunday we go into more detail and have practical sessions on frame making and also discuss honey extraction techniques and other hive products.  You also get another visit to the bees to build up your confidence even further.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate children under 15 years of age on our courses.
