Let Us Share Our Passion for Beekeeping With You
One thing we've discovered through our beekeeping journey, is that you never stop learning! You often hear that if you ask ten beekeepers the same question, you'll get twelve responses! There are many new beekeepers emerging, especially within the last five years, and the interest hasn't waned. Starting off on a solid foundation benefits not only you as the beekeeper, it protects the integrity of the industry as a whole. We have two exciting shorter courses to offer this year. The Beeginners Bee Course for the curious, those starting out, or wanting a refresher. You may be willing to explore the next level with our Level 2 day class. John Gates will may be teaching his Queen Rearing Course. For a more in-depth learning experience, coupled with a fabulous Shuswap experience, be sure to check out our Sweet Retreat.
For either course, your classroom is our honey house where we extract all of our honey. Our acreage is located in Tappen, beautifully located on the Shuswap Lake system, between Sorrento and Salmon Arm, just two km off of the Trans Canada Highway.
