Beekeeper Classes: Beekeeping on the Front Range requires a mix of art and science. Beekeepers are life-long learners that continuously refine their craft and hone their skills. We offer a wide range of classes to support the novice to advanced beekeeper. Our class schedule coincides with the bee season as it progresses. We offer our basic 6hr “brass tacks” course in late Fall through to early Spring. Throughout the summer we provide more advanced classes that include pest management with an emphasis on the varroa destructor mite, hive management classes to include hive splitting, queen rearing, and how to make money in beekeeping. We also provide seasonal classes such as overwintering, and honey harvesting. Our classes are designed to equip you with the concepts, knowledge, and best management practices needed to successfully keep honeybees.
