Beekeeping Lessons

$30/person/3 hour session
We offer teaching sessions at our production yards. We'll teach you how to read what is happening in the hives, what to do based on hive assessment, seasonal management activities, and practical tips. Each session lasts about 3 hours. Since it is extremely hands on and interactive, we cap the classes to 4 people. In the spring we're in our yards almost every week, so lots of opportunities. We recommend 2-3 sessions.

We also sell woodenware.
