This is for anyone just taking up beekeeping or wishing to learn more about honey bees. We’ll meet in our training apiary near Elgin for a presentation then, after lunch, you will meet the bees and we’ll show you the fascinating world inside a hive.

During the day you will learn about the life history of the honeybee and find out what is required to get you started as a beekeeper.

We ask for a donation of £35 for the course and this includes refreshments during the day and a soup and sandwich lunch. 

You can find the course booking on Eventbrite:
11th May (past)

I look forward to seeing you at our apiary in May. If you want any more information then please contact me on <>.
