Our hands-on Beekeeping Lesson is the fastest, best way to gain the basic skills and knowledge to become a beekeeper. You will learn about beekeepign tools, hive equipment, and basic bee biology. As you work hives alongside our Bee Expert you will learn to assess and know what actions to take when working your bees. We recommend beekeeping lessons be 4 people max. Each ticket is for 1 guest. We offer loaner gear for those who do not have their own protective gear.
When you place your order we will contact you to schedule your lesson! Beekeeping is weather dependent so we reserve the right to reschedule as necessary.
We recommend arriving at least 15-30 minutes early to get comfortable and put on your protective gear. If you need loaner gear, please reply to this email with your estimated size for suit/gloves. Our store has a restroom, cold drinks, and we can help you put your gear on if you are uncertain. You will be in the bees for about 1-2 hours so arrive hydrated and fueled up for physical work. Please write down any questions you have in advance. It is easy to forget questions when the bees are buzzing around! We want to be able to help you learn as much as possible.
