Learn to keep honey bees in a weekend
Beekeeping at Staithe Farm concentrates on providing sufficient knowledge to start beekeeping in a country setting on the edge of the Broads National Park. There is the advantage that accomodation is available on-site in our lovely self-catering holiday cottage.
Specialising in training with a maximum of 2 students ensures that you receive full support throughout the weekend and, subject to satisfactory progress, will mean you will be able to look after your own bees by the end of the course. Telephone support will also be available afterwards.
The courses are run by Richard who is a British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) Qualified beekeeper holding the Advanced Theory Certificate and the General Husbandry Certificate. He is also a semi-retired Science teacher with an honours degree in Environmental Sciences.
All equipment will be provided apart from footwear. Wellington boots are strongly advised with sufficient space around the leg to allow the beesuit to be tucked into the boots.
Courses are available from mid April to August
