Beekeeping is an increasingly popular, very enjoyable and deliciously rewarding hobby. We offer you some advice on how to get started.
Beekeeping in Northern Ireland is largely a small scale enterprise. We would recommend that in the first instance you contact your local Association as they can provide you with the local level of support required to get started.
By taking part in the preliminary beekeeping course you will benefit from a basic understanding of what becoming a Beekeeper will entail.
Most Associations support the course with training sessions in their a local apiary where you gain experience in handling the bees before you make the investment in equipment and your own honey bees.
