Malcolm Thompson, our expert tutor, starts with the important information – how to deal with stings – before moving on to equipment for bee keeping, how to handle bees, the beekeeper’s year and how to deal with pests. It’s complex stuff.
 
While there is a very good chance a hive will thrive without any help from us humans, in order to make the most of your bees, you have to look after them.

Malcolm explains in a soft Geordie accent the roles of Queens, workers and drones – each has its own crucial role to play in the continual health of the colony.

But as the sun continues to beat down, it’s obvious that Malcolm isn’t happy in the classroom, so we head for the hives, but not before we taste three types of honey from different hives in the region.
