Beekeeping Courses

In addition to our Taster day experience we are able to offer custom courses for beekeeping groups and other organisations interested in learning more about bees. We have experience with delivering courses covering all aspects of beekeeping from initial taster experience through to advanced courses for those beekeepers who would like to study for the BBKA examinations.
