How can I get started in beekeeping?
The best way, in my opinion, to get involved with bees is through a Beekeeping Association. You can find out about bees, get to wear the suits and even handle some bees before you have to spend a penny - find out if beekeeping really is for you. Then if you decide it is, you will get support and help from all the other members. The more beekeepers the merrier!
If you live in Montgomeryshire, then get in touch with us and we'll help you get started! If you live elsewhere, then there is almost certainly a Beekeeping Association that can help you get started. Go to the British Beekeepers Association or the Welsh Beekeepers Association websites to find out which is your nearest association.
If you join us at Montybees you'll enjoy hive insurance, monthly meetings and the help of a personal mentor with your bees. We'll help you source second hand equipment and point you towards a colony of bees and/or swarms. It's not just the beekeeping, we have good social events as well! Get in touch with our secretary for details of how to join.
