Entry to our program with Step 1 isn't a taster glossing over bees and beekeeping but will give you the knowledge & fundamentals on how to manage your bees properly to maximise their health and production. A full demonstration of bee husbandry with tips & tricks at different times throughout the season. It takes a lot more than just placing your hive in the backyard and leaving it to do its own thing... You will learn to read the frames and problem solve to give them the best care they deserve.

Springtime is the best time to start your hobby so our time frames are perfect to plan, setup and be ready to get your bees.

Step 1 - Beekeeping for Beginners is a pre-requisite to join our entire program offering where we drill down & learn how to properly manage & care for your bees from beginner to advanced techniques.

Hands on field days (Step 2) are our specialty to ensure you gain the necessary experience to safely handle your colony.  They begin in Springtime through to Summer and are invite only to our current students.  

The entire Backyard Beekeeping program will take you through the journey in understanding the Honeybee colony so you and your family can reap the rewards of their tireless pollination & delicious backyard raw honey. Mmmmm its simply the best!
