About The Event

Dan and his father Ken run practical beekeeping courses from their honey farm down in Devon. They are both well-known on

the beekeeping circuit.Dan is Master Beekeeper, a BBKA exaominer and heloed to write their ‘Course in a Case’ for beginners, on which we base our own beginners course. 

Beekeepers are natural optimists – starting each season with the hope that this year will be that perfect season where everything comes right. The cyclical seasonal nature of beekeeping makes it possible to broadly predict what equipment and interventions may be needed and when, but how many of us still play catch up with the bees? We review various key tasks and preparations as one season ends and the next begins, and look at some of the key skills that underpin confident and successful beekeeping.
