Read what some of our course participants have said about our courses and their experience.
Harry and I would like to thank you for such a informative and really enjoyable 5 hour bee course. Thank you for being flexible and organising a time to suit us. We thoroughly enjoyed the jar of honey we harvested that day and now are eagerly waiting to harvest our own.
The course you provided gave us the confidence to look at our bees and understand a little about what we are looking at. It was interesting seeing different sorts of hives, I had only seen the traditional hives. We have a better understanding of lighting the smoker, which seems a technique all of its own. The nuc we sourced from you are so quiet, and have multiplied rapidly. We can waste a lot of time watching the bees working away.
Thank you again.

My experience with 8 Frame Honey has opened my eyes to the wonderful world of Bees. I have wanted to get involved in beekeeping for some years but the time was never right. I stumbled on to 8 Frame Honey by chance, I did my training and am now looking forward to being a beekeeper. I found my training with 8 Frame Honey a joy, a very young company but professional in every way. My training consisted of some theory but mostly hands on with the bees, I was dressed in the appropriate clothing and nothing was left to chance. I highly recommend this training with 8 Frame honey. I now feel part of the beekeeping family with all the support I will need on my adventure.

Thank you so much Cathy and I had such a great day and experience. I know I’m going to talk about it for ages. I can’t wait to retire and get my bee hives. I just can’t express the wonder of the experience. I can’t wait to have my own bees making a difference to the garden and orchard and seeing the impact they will have. Thank you again.

Thanks very much for today. I think you have created a new beekeeper or two. It was a great session today, very interesting, very well presented and enjoyable. Best wishes for the move.

Thanks Ben for giving us a real, informative and practical introduction to bee keeping! It was great to see an honest lesson in bee keeping for better and worse. In the end we left confident we had the knowledge to start our own hive and a jar of amazing honey to remember why bees are awesome!
