BeesWales is the largest provider of introductory beekeeping courses in Wales.
We urge you to follow your course by joining your local beekeepers’ association, attending apiary meetings and winter lecture meetings, read all you can about bees, team up with other beekeepers, and become thoroughly absorbed in beekeeping. It’s a life-long passion for most of us!
The Weekend Courses and Taster Days are very popular with visitors. We can suggest places to stay.
Taster Days make a popular present.
We suggest new beekeepers complete a course, and then start with their own bees in the summer. We can put you in touch with local suppliers of nuclei (small colonies of bees).
Haynes The Bee Manual by Adrian and Claire Waring. Great book, in a class of its own.
Ted Hooper’s Guide to Bees and Honey was recommended for many years, but is now very out of date.
