Popular Practical Classes

These are ‘hands on’ classes. Working in pairs, you will manage your own hive for six weeks and watch its development through the active season. You have the opportunity to assemble hives and frames from equipment supplied. Each evening we have a discussion on what we have seen. Honey is extracted and prepared for resale. Notes are given on major beekeeping topics.
