Natural Beekeeping Courses

(+ postage of £0)

A Hands On Introduction To Natural Beekeeping Using Warre Hives and Top Bar Hives


The day will provide an inspiring insight into the nature of the honeybee colony and the principles of natural beekeeping. Participants of the course should also gain the basic confidence and knowledge of how to inspect, manipulate and manage a natural comb hive for themselves.


We will be looking at how the principles of natural beekeeping are applied in Top Bar hives, Warre hives and National bee hives. The day will include a discussion about each of the hives, their principles and seasonal management.  Participants will then have the opportunity to observe and get hands on with the bees and the  hives.  All inspections and manipulations will be based around the seasonal management of the colonies.  There will be plenty of time to ask questions throughout the day and tea, coffee and packed lunch will be provided.

In the event that weather conditions are really awful (or predicted to be so) on the day of the course participants will be offered either a full refund or a transfer to another date.  We cannot predict the weather I'm afraid!  Last year we were lucky and all couses went ahead.  In any case participants will be contacted in advance. 


Dates TBA.
