Beekeeping Courses

We offer amazingly fun beekeeping course in a learning environment solely focused on making you a better beekeeper. Your success is our passion! Come learn from the best and meet other local beekeepers!

There are a few tricks to getting your bees to make it through the winter, And it all begins in the summer. This class is set up so that you receive emails from mid summer through to the fall, telling you what you need to do every step of the way.  When you come to class you’ll have done everything up to that point, which dramatically increases your chances of winter survival.  In class we’ll review why I made you take those steps, and you’ll learn how to prepare your hives for our winter climate, or whatever climate your raising bees in.  This is a hands on class, and you will be wrapping hives in our yard.  

We’ve had great success with over wintering our bees, these amazing tricks will be sure to improve your chances of winter survival.
