Beekeeping Class

Breadcrumb Navigation


3 consecutive Saturdays – $95
March 9, 16 and 23 from 9:00AM – 12:00PM (SOLD OUT)

This course is meant to familiarize “newbees” with the gear, terminology, pests, biology, lifecycle, etc. of honeybees. It’s a good crash course for novices. Due to the time of year, we won’t be opening any hives. However, if you want to start beekeeping next spring, this course should prepare you for that. Graduates of this course will also be made aware of some of the swarm catches Ginnie will be doing next spring and invited to tag along. Class size is limited to 10 students.

Cost is $95 per student.

Classes will be held at Sweeney Hill Farm
1234 Cliff Amos Rd.
Spring Hill, TN 37174

Topics covered will include…

  • Woodenware and beekeeping equipment
  • Bee pests and management
  • Types of honeybees, their lifecycle and behavior
  • Swarm management
  • What a beekeeper should do at different times of the year.
