Beekeeper Training for Natural Beekeepers and Bee Talks


Welcome to, the site that offer all of your Natural Beekeeping training needs at a reasonable  cost along with talks aimed at interested groups. Please browse the site and don't hesitate to use the "Contact Us" page to raise any questions you may have about building Horizontal Top-Bar hives, training courses or beekeeping talks.

I am pleased to also be able to offer talks about bumblebees in cooperation with The Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

Top-Bar Hives
The hives that I use are based on plans created by Phil Chandler and are free to download from Biobees.

My home is located close to the border between Lancashire & North Yorkshire, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. If you are in the area you can visit, with prior appointment, for a chat or to discuss your requirements. The kettle is rarely far from boiling!
FREE OFFER! Download a FREE booklet explaining the advantages of the design features of a Top-Bar hive to help you decide what your ideal hive will be. Click Here.

Have a look at the Blog page to see what I have done and the topics covered.

Latest courses can be viewed on the Natural Beekeeper Training page.

I hope you enjoy looking through the site. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
