Training

Taster Days

We run a Taster Day at our apiary for those who would like a general introduction to the world of beekeeping. The cost is £15 per person (or £20 for two booking together). Early booking is always advised. No dates have yet been fixed for 2021 given the current government regulations. Please check back here later in the year.

Beginners Beekeeping Course

Once a year, through late winter and spring, we run our comprehensive Beginners’ Beekeeping Course which follows the BBKA Basic syllabus and aims to instil confidence and knowledge in new beekeepers in order for them to keep happy and healthy bees. The course is held at two venues – the Castle Centre, Barnstaple to start and then moves on to our apiary at Horestone. Tutors are all experienced beekeepers and we aim for students to experience handling and understanding of bees in their hives as much as the weather allows.

Our 2021 course is now full but please contact us for information about future learning opportunities
