Kate Jenkins reviewed: A Beekeeping Taster Day

"I attended the course as I am very interested to start beekeeping and wanted to understand more of what it entails and whether it’s for me or not. The morning was spent in the classroom learning all about the bees and how incredibly clever they are! We learnt about how the equipment works and all about diseases and health and safety. It was so interesting. We also got to look at examples of the different bees, handle honeycomb and propolis, and of course we tried some delicious honey. In the afternoon we met Josh - the bee man of Bexhill! He clearly adores bees and his love of beekeeping was so endearing. He showed us a hive and we inspected all the frames in the brood and saw the Queen and cells with eggs and pupae. We learnt about the different hives and equipment needed to get started. I’m hooked. This isn’t a course to enable you to get going - I think I now need to go on a course on how to get started and I will join my local bee association to do this. The only thing is - I was pretty cold as the classroom is in a sort of shed - so do take layers with you! Great day though, thank you. "

Mantel Farm responded:

" Deat Kate, thanks for leaving a review of our Beekeeping Taster Day, I am pleased you want to get started with your beekeeping. Local associations are a great sourse of help, and we also offer an intenstive weekend course to get you started."
