Private Beekeeping Course 2 hour
We can provide you with an up close and personal onsite visit in our apiary! Are you looking to start beekeeping? Trying to gain experience for the certification exam? Do you want to feel more comfortable caring for your own girls? Then this is a great way to start. We are either a Certified or Journeyman beekeeper that can walk you through a complete hive inspection, identification of trouble areas, re-queening processes, hive nutrition practices, just to name a few of the topics. We can tailor the time to your personal needs and desires with the bees. Of course, our availability is weather dependent. October - March time-frames may be too cold to open the hives, especially for an extended period of time. We also do not open hives in the rain. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us! Ready to get started? Fill out the form when selecting this service and we will get back to you promptly to finalize the date.
Participants must have: Protective clothing. This is to your comfort level. Jeans, boots, and a long sleeve shirt with a veil works fine. We do require at least a veil, we may have an extra or two on hand. We also recommend you bring yourself a drink and a snack. There is always some risk of being stung by bees when working in the hive. Any person on our property is responsible for making sure they are prepared in the event of a bee sting.
