    Classes will be held in the Spring and Summer of 2023 - always weather permitting, and always on a weekend. Please see our events tab for new classes. We collect Swarms in the Spring time, and then manage those colonies so that they survive and are able to product honey. We have honey extraction classes when the hives produce honey. We also teach hive maintenance classes. We have been beekeepers for over 9 years and have had both bees for hobby and commercial bees for pollination.
