An ADVENTURE awaits you, whether you are interested in how honey is made, the prospects of owning your own hive, or conquering your fear of stinging insects. These are just a few of the accomplishments of our two-session classes. There is something of interest for everyone and the classes are appropriate for all ages.
We encourage family participation in this hands-on, safe environment.

These sessions are also for those who already own their own bees but have never really understood how to manage them. They are also designed for those who have already purchased a hive from us or have a deposit down on one.
Beehives can be moved almost any time of year. But prior to June is certainly the best time. We can also schedule advanced training at your location or ours.

We will cover History: How did we get to this point of honey bee management? Math?? Yes, Math! Creation is literally supported by mathematical equations, and our honey bee (aphis Mellifera) is no exception to this fact. Science: Lots of it as we go along,
as well as the construction of the hive.
In these sessions, we follow the life cycle of the honey bee beginning in June and concluding in August.
Each session runs approximately five hours, 10:00AM - 3:00PM, with a lunch break in the middle. Bring a blanket and picnic and enjoy the refreshing beauty of this country setting.
Our goal is to see you walk away with a smile on your face and a bounce in your step, armed with understanding.
