    Individual Class

    The Beginning Beekeeping Class is your path to success as a new beekeeper. Our four-session course covers from getting bees to the steps you need to take throughout a beekeeping year.  This class is designed for beekeeping in North Texas.  We have a class every month so that you can make sure you are getting current information for YOUR bees. 

    Before you order bees, buy equipment and beekeeping books sign up for our class.  We will show you the essential equipment and textbook needed for your apiary in North Texas.  Beekeeping students tell us every year our class exceeded their expectations and that they avoided buying unnecessary equipment and textbooks.
