Beekeeping Lessons

Looking to become a beekeeper or expand your knowledge and skill set? We offer lessons on a variety of topics from Introductory Beekeeping to Integrated Pest Management and Queen Rearing. Private lessons, consulting services and custom courses are also available. Contact us for more information. We will new dates as required.

Our teaching philosophy is that the bees will tell you everything you need to know, you just need to learn how to listen. With that in mind, we will teach you how to use all of your senses to 'read' a beehive. We will also teach you the 'rules of the hive', that will let you understand the how the bees will react to your management decisions and the increasingly variable weather.

all lessons are subject to HST
