You'll be given some handy reference material to take home with you too which will give you some guidance on next steps if you decide to continue your beekeeping journey!

The course makes a perfect gift for the nature lover in your life. You or the recipient will receive a voucher plus you can add the excellent "Do Beekeeping" book and a "Save the Bees" enamel badge to your order with the option of a gift box.

Fantastic workshop

My husband and I did this workshop in June in Somerset and had such a great day. This is introductory level and it was so interesting finding out about keeping bees and taking a look in the hive. We got to taste lots of different honeys and had a delicious lunch- many thanks!

Brilliant Intro to Bee Keeping

A great day

For a days workshop this was great. Black Bee Honey hosts a day with plenty of knowledge, a gentle ethic and in a fun and stylish setting. I met great folk, had fun and the lunch was a treat too.
