Beginning Your Beekeeping - Two Day Beginners Course

In-person course
Pamela Mansergh - - #11496

I knew nothing about bees when I attended the Beekeeping Course for Beginners at Mantel Farm early last year after I had been given two hives with colonies! I gained a huge amount of knowledge from these two days and importantly the course was backed up with instructive illustrated notes to which I refer frequently. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking of taking up this interesting and satisfying (sometimes!) hobby.

After considering beekeeping for a few years I decided to take the leap and attend a beginners course. The information gained helped me greatly from general knowledge to understanding costs and time needed. Such a commitment needs someone like Mantel Farm to guide you through the process. The course itself was well run by an expert beekeeper, with useful notes, and we got to inspect a real live hive. Food provided was great, overall a wonderful experience.
