Join me for a full day of beekeeping.
I provide a small number of Beekeeping Experience Days each season for anyone interested in getting started in beekeeping or anyone simply interested in seeing what a beekeeper gets up to with his beehives.
These are one to one full days 9am to 4pm (which mostly overrun due to getting so involved with the bees!). We can include a friend or partner if you want to bring someone along with you.
We start the day by talking about what you would like to get out of the day and discuss beekeeping generally and what equipment you may require to get started, talk about honeybee basic biology and the make up of a hive.
- Honeybee Basic Biology
- What a beehive consists off
- Look at the Tools and equipment required
- Cover the Beekeeping Year
- Talk about the costs of beekeeping
- Discuss obtaining your first honeybees (Local bees are best)
- Plus a whole lot more.
The main purpose of the day however is to get you in front of as many beehives as possible and show you what is involved in looking after a colony of honeybees, culminating in you carrying out an inspection on a hive accompanied by me if you so wished.
It is a really simple hobby to get involved in but takes a lifetime to master (and then some!). We provide the bee suit and gloves, you just need to bring some wellies.
The cost of the day which includes lunch and drinks is £199 for one person or £299 for an accompanied day (1 additional non-beekeeper).
Please book your day by purchasing this product and I will then email you to arrange a specific day subject to the weather. If the arranged day is cancelled due to the weather we will rearrange as many times as needed until we get you in front of the bees.
Beekeeping Experience Day - Individual
Join me for a special day out inspecting honeybees and learning more about these incredible creatures.
I think you will be completely satisfied with our Experience/Training Days but if you have any reason to feel less than 100% happy please talk to me and I'm sure we can resolve the situation.
