Want to be a beekeeper but don't know where to start? The Bee Great beginner beekeeping school is for you!

Our last class this season will takes place at Forest Lodge at 701 Cicero Road
Noblesville, IN 46060. March 16, 2024, from 10:00-2:00. (Lunch will be provided around noon).

You get a beginner beekeeping kit which includes a bottom board, 10 frame brood box, 10 frames with plasticell foundation, an inner cover, and a telescoping outer cover. Bees are NOT included. However, by attending the bee school, you will be eligible to buy a nuc of bees from Bee Great.  The hive is already assembled and painted, so you're ready to get started as soon as your bees arrive.

We will also have a drawing for a FREE nuc of bees at the class!

Confused? Don't worry, we'll teach you everything from the ground up about the hive included with the school. You'll also receive a 10% discount towards the purchase of all your beekeeping supplies like a smoker, hive tool, bee suit, etc. 

We'll start with a thorough description of the parts of the hive. Then we'll talk honey bee anatomy and behavior. We'll cover bee installation in the hive, how to use a smoker, and we'll share a calendar of steps to take throughout the year as a beekeeper. We'll also talk about feeding bees, and hive inspections. You also get free mentoring for two years from the Bee Great beekeepers!

 Space is limited, so sign up today!

NOTE: Each purchase includes admission for 2 people, but only one hive starter kit. If you want a kit for each person, you'll need to make two purchases for the full price.

I really enjoyed the class. David was very knowledgeable and helpful at answering questions. Not pushy or insistent about buying products from him, which made you want to buy from/through him. I'm a bit nervous about starting out with this, but I'm confident he will answer any questions I might have. I can't wait to take the intermediate class next year! Thank you Bee Great!!

You'll do great, Robin! We had so much fun. Thanks for leaving a review, it means a lot to us. Thanks for supporting our mission to teach more people about bees and beekeeping and to help the honeybee! Honey saves hives!!!
