Beekeeping Courses at Staithe Farm
Beekeeping courses at Staithe Farm vary between short taster sessions of 2-3 hours duration to intensive 2 day courses designed to enable students to competently keep bees by the end of the course. The taster sessions are suitable for complete beginners who wish to gain an understanding of what is involved in keeping honey bees.
The intensive course is for a maximum of 2 students which ensures you will receive full support. Telephone support will also be available afterwards.
Courses are designed for people who prefer not to learn in larger groups, with the aim of providing participants with sufficient knowledge to embark on this fascinating pursuit, subject, of course, to satisfactory progress. The courses are run by Richard, the cottage owner, a British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) Qualified Beekeeper, holding both the Advanced Theory Certificate and the General Husbandry Certificate. Richard is also a qualified science teacher so is able to teach and assess learning. This is particularly important as there are both theory and practical skills to learn.
Designed for people who have no previous knowledge of beekeeping Richard will show you how to handle bees and look after them.
