Fairs and shows

We attend a number of local shows every year, often with observation hive. We will post our days out on our facebook page. If you are interested in our bees visiting a group or show please contact us.

Observation Hive
We have an observation hive at Gibside Chapel during the summer months

Talks at your events
We have a number of experienced beekeepers who give talks to clubs, schools, and other events. 
Starting beekeeping
Interested in becoming a beekeeper? Our main purpose is to assist new beekeepers. Have a look at our Getting Started page or better still come along to one of our meetings.
The most common starting advice is...

Join an Association
Take a local introductory course
Read at least one good book on beekeeping – The Haynes Beekeeping Manual is well worth a look.
