“I think I get as much of a kick out of day as the students”… David The Bee Farmer 

Below are some testimonials from folks with whom I have worked and the things have been so kind to say

Adam, Foundation course January 2020 

“Great course, Really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it”

Penny, Foundation course October 2019 

“Just to say thank you, thank you for your inspiring “Introduction to bee keeping course ” (26 / 27 Oct 2019)!! It was fantastic and your delivery was personable and infectious I personally liked the atmosphere of the course that was open and your delivery clearly imparted your knowledge and passion for beekeeping. I have purchased all the reading material recommended + some more the I have found in 2nd hand bookshops. My next steps ideally would be a couple of practical days with you to gain confidence in bee keeping in 2020. Thanks again”
