. Vanessa and Matt ran a very relaxed and informative day. Lettung us ask lots of questions . Best part was hands in the give and seeing how they extract the honey.

A terrific introduction to bees and how a hive works. The 'hands on' experience of opening a beehive, removing racks, seeing close up how the hive works was fascinating. Watching honey being extracted from a hive was very informative, and the sample jar I took home was delicious. My questions were answered throughout the day, and Vanessa and Mark were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in taking up bee keeping, to see if keeping bees is right for them.
