Beginning Beekeeper Course - Goals - To teach beekeepers all aspect of conceptual and practical beekeeping to keep bees and financially sustain their operation
Intermediate Beekeeper Course - Brief Review of key aspects of "Beginning Beekeeping" and instruction on advance techniques to make beekeeping profitable. This will include sections on techniques for increased honey production such as the two queen method, making increase , pollen and propolis production and marketing bee products.
In the Beehive Course - Beekeepers will have the opportunity to work in a beehive in a supervised class and learn all aspects of manipulating a hive and become comfortable with working around bees.
As we worked to teach and support over 200 beekeepers in the past couple of years one thing became clear, there was too much misinformation being presented in classes taught by part time beekeepers with good intentions and not enough actual experience or training. After years of watching this cause beekeepers to feel defeated we painstakingly developed a dynamic team instructed course approach which aims first at getting your head straight with practiced sustainable concepts, then learning practical beekeeping techniques which are the stalwarts of our industry and then finishing up with actual hands on, instructor supervised, field work. Complete, comprehensive and easy to understand. Our course encompasses over 3 decades of beekeeping experience and research and will give you a solid foundation to become a successful , sustainable beekeeper. With the state of beekeeping issues today every beekeepers is an arsenal against the collapse of our honeybees and their impact on our food. We hope you join us in this important and magical craft!
