The start of a journey

I have always been interested in keeping bee’s more specifically the honey bee. After keeping chickens succsessfully over the last three years, I decided that i was at the right place in my life to start learning the art of bee keeping.

In the Autum of 2011, I took part in a day course, kind of like a taster session in keeping bees, with a theory based session in the morning, and a hands on session in the Aipary during the afternoon. The course was ran by Oaktree Cottage Apiary in a village called Flaxey in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.

Following on from the day course I joind the Gloucestershire Bee Keepers AssociationCheltenham and Gloucester branch. I enrolled in their classroom based Winter course. The course is now complete, I now need a bee hive, a smoker, a hive tool, a bee suit and oh yes I almost forgot the most important thing, the Bees.
