Paul reviewed: A one day introduction to good beekeeping practice

"Just back from the 2 of us enjoying this fascinating course. All questions answered at a pace to suit us, plus loads of interesting stuff we never knew about bees, and visits to the beautiful gardens to handle the hives, remove and examine the combs, and discover how perfectly safe one feels in a bee suit ! And the National Trust could learn something about serving lunches and tea from Chris ! An excellent day's value for money. Thank you both - highly recommended."

" We are delighted that you enjoyed the day."

Sue Shepherd reviewed: A one day introduction to good beekeeping practice

"We spent a brilliant day on this bee keeping course. Incredibly informative with lots of hands on experience pitched at just the right level. Took you through the lifecycle of bees and how to manage them and your hive from start to finish. All equipment and a delicious lunch provided. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone considering taking up keeping bees."

The Barnyard Apiaries responded:

" Thank you for your review. We are very pleased you found the course useful. Good luck with your own beekeeping."

Caitlin reviewed: A one day introduction to good beekeeping practice

"Really enjoyed the day and meeting local beekeepers. I found the instruction and ability to ask questions at any time really helpful as well as just seeing what a proper set-up looks like. The mix of hands-on & theory was well balanced. I took photos of slides / posters I found useful - in particular, the lifecycle of the different bees and what kind of workload to expect when (with no guarantees of course!). Lovely lunch & beautiful garden surrounds. Thanks"

" Hi Caitlin, I'm very pleased to read that you enjoyed the course and found it useful. Good luck with your own bees. Jonathan"
