Service Description

This is a hands-on class at our apiary from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Food and drinks will be provided. ---- Our Beginner Beekeeping Class is the perfect opportunity for hands-on training before embarking on your adventure. Crissy has gathered her knowledge from a plethora of seasoned beekeepers before her and loves passing on the knowledge she has gained. Whether it is your first time in a bee suit or you want a refresher before diving into the honeybee world, we love being able to share memorable moments. Researching and reading are excellent entries for beekeeping. However, we suggest a hands-on learning environment to ensure keeping bees is what you expect before getting your hive. The Beekeeping 101 Class will help you identify what to look for in a hive and, most importantly, how to be comfortable and safe when working with the bees! This is our solid foundation! We want to ensure you are trained correctly for your safety and the safety and growth of the honeybees. ​ This class will be held at our primary SGF location in Potosi, TX. Classroom time will consist of a two-hour PowerPoint presentation, and then we will proceed to the apiary for the field class portion.
