2019 has been a great year to get into beekeeping!
We had class in January, February and April and each class grew in size and flow. It was so much fun having so many new people learning about bees and becoming their own beekeepers!
We loved the new model of having a complete class experience in one day to include about 90 minutes inspecting hives on our site. Students were able to commit one day instead of 6, and they seemed to enjoy spending the day learning all about the amazing honey bee!
We are already planning for 2020, so if you know someone interested in becoming a beekeeper, please pass along our info to them and their info to us!!
It is that time! Have you always thought about getting your own bees, but were not sure where to start? Are you addicted to YouTube videos about beekeeping??
Let us help you!! We have been teaching beekeeping classes for 3 years and love to get new beekeepers educated and running with their own Apiaries (bee yard). So sign up now! We limit our class to 12 students to ensure you get plenty of 1:1 time with one of us! And YES this is a family affair!!
Advanced Master Beekeepers Jacob and Peter Cole help teach out classes!! Master Gardner Janelle Cole (and Jacob and Peter) can teach you all about flower importance for your honey production! Master Beekeeper Robert Cole will instruct on many other topics as well!!
Harvest your own honey, so you will have not have to hunt down honey when cold & flu season hit! Enjoy watching your girls work in your garden as the bees pollinate the vegetables and make honey!!
