My son and I had a great day learning about bees. Informal, friendly, small group. Some talks in morning and then hands on with the bees. Clearly Gruffydd enthusiastic about bees and that rubs off. Really good way to learn ( complete novice with no previous experience) couple of weeks later have hive, all the kit required and a colony of bees all through Gwenyngruffydd. They have been extremely helpful and supportive and continue to be a point of contact if needed . would recommend without hesitation.
Thoroughly enjoyed this course provided by Gruff and Angharad.
Fantastic welcome, refreshments, theoretical session, lunch and (most exciting) practical experience in the afternoon.
I thoroughly recommend this course for those who are thinking of taking up beekeeping.
Excellent value for money since it furnishes you with all the knowledge and practical experience you need to get started.
Great day learning the basics of beekeeping to the point I would be confident to start and know I can get any advice from Gruff and Angharad to keep me on track.
You can feel the passion and enthusiasm Gruff feels for their bees and their honey. No hard sell which is refreshing and a lovely lunch included. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in bees or beekeeping 👍🐝😃
What can I say, we had the most amazing training day with the very lovely Angharad and Gruff. On arrival we had drinks and biscuits, fruit, fresh prepared (with fruit) water and Angharad and Gruff were so welcoming (and their 2 little boys). We then had the theory lesson which was so interesting, Gruff is amazing. He has a real zeal for his work and it comes through in his training and all our queries were answered. Lunch arrived....wow!! In the afternoon we got to see the bees in action and got to see the theory lesson in practice. I must say that whether you would like to keep bees or not, this is still a course I would definitely recommend. It's one of the best experiences I've ever had. It was such a happy day, spent with a lovely, hard working family who have created a real wonderful venture. We wish you all the best with your future endeavours. Book it people, recommend it 100%
Huge thanks to Angharad and Gruff or a very sound days training course. Theory in the morning and a practical in the afternoon.
The morning session was set at the right level and pace providing the newbee with sound knowledge and a desire to learn more.
After a great lunch we then walked to one of their apiaries and watched as Gruff inspected his hives and showed us the practical side of beekeeping. We all had the opportunity to be ‘hands on’ and handle frames.
I’d thoroughly recommend this training day.🐝
