Do you like our bees? Have you met them at an event and wondered, “Are they really that gentle?” Well, guess what? We are so excited to share this news with you all – we are now offering Intro to Beekeeping here at the ranch! On Saturday, July 9, Mark will teach his first formal class as part of a joint effort with Round Rock Honey Company (Round Rock, Texas). We are thrilled to have an opportunity to share some of Mark’s thirty years of experience working with bees.
This class is available via Groupon San Antonio and will be featured tomorrow, June 30 through Sunday, July 3. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment here on the blog or you may email us (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope you will consider coming out and joining us – it should be a lot of fun! You know we love to talk about our bees and our business. And while we may not have all the answers, we sure don’t mind sharing what we know, what’s worked for us as well as what’s not worked for us as we learn more and more about bees and the bee business.
During the class, students will be given an introduction to the bee (who’s a queen, who’s a drone), beekeeping equipment and handling of bees. We will also have two hives on-site so that we can peek inside and discuss what we see. And if you’re wondering if you get to wear one of those awesome white bee suits…you’re in luck – we will have bee suits for students! Have I mentioned we’re going to have a lot of fun? 🙂
