This is a beginners course for anyone considering taking up beekeeping or simply wishing to learn more about honey bees. The course takes place at our training apiary near Elgin and runs from 10am till 4pm. We spend the morning in the classroom looking at the life history of the honeybee and go over all that is required to get you started as a beekeeper. After lunch we will lend you a bee suit and gloves and show you the fascinating world inside a hive of bees. We end the day tasting some of our fabulous local honey. We ask for a donation of £55 for the course and this includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day, course hand outs and use of the protective clothing.
