Karen reviewed: Bee Curious with Dr Daf The Bee Doctor - Half-day experience

"Had a very enjoyable experience on the 3 hour bee course with Dafyd. A great insight into bee keeping for a beginner, which has left me wanting to know more. Would thoroughly recommended this course to anyone with the slightest interest in bees."

Austin reviewed: So you want to be a beekeeper! Beginners two-day course

"As a novice to beekeeping, Dafydd introduced all the relevant subject matter for a beginner to understand and think about starting conventional beekeeping. Dafydd is obviously very experienced both as a keeper and someone who can communicate well to deliver comprehensive material. The practical elements of the course works well with the theory and combined produce an effective programme over two days. Personally I would have liked a bit more on natural beekeeping as my goal for attending was aimed at pollination rather that harvesting honey, however, I found the theory very interesting and certainly raised my awareness of the subject matter. I would recommend this course as a really good introduction with fascinating practical modules carried out in a perfectly safe environment, located in one of the most attractive areas in North Wales."

Karen reviewed: Build your own bee hive with Dr Daf The Bee Doctor

"This was just what I needed to get me started with making my own hive kit. Dafydd showed us the handy tools that help, and where to get materials. He made it look very possible, even for beginner woodworkers like me. The lovely lunch was a bonus!"

Anglesey Bees responded:

"I am glad that the course was just what you needed and that you left feeling equipped and confident to buy materials, use tools and build your own hives. Your contribution to the course was invaluable. I look forward to seeing those new hives!"
