Beekeeping for Beginners: This class is a 3-part series.  Nov. 3, 10, and 17th -  6:30-8:00pm!  $40.00 for all 3 sessions.

Have you ever wanted to learn about what it takes to be a beekeeper? Are you curious about honey bees and what you can do to help them and other pollinators? Suzanne the beekeeper for the bees on Snipes Farm is hosting a 3 session class to learn all about beekeeping!

Sign up for our virtual class to get a beginner’s view into beekeeping, and a sneak peek into the complicated and amazing lives of honey bees. Come away with resource information on what to consider if you would like to get started in this rewarding hobby, or other ways to aid pollinators if becoming a keeper is not your goal. Honey bees are so much more than honey! This 3-session class is not to bee missed!

During the 3 Virtual Sessions we will cover these topics: 

  • Meet the critter you're endeavoring to keep
  • An overview of honey bees and current challenges
  • How do I get started?  Equipment for your bees, equipment for you, location, legal requirements
  • How do I get bees?
  • Preparing for your bees to arrive
  • Your bees are here - how do I get them in a box?
  • What's involved in the keeping?
  • Much too much?  How else one might help pollinators if beekeeping isn't really your thing.
  • A tiny little video closure related to nature and growth
