To Hive or Not...Hobby Beekeeping

Learn how to become a hobby beekeeper with Beechworth Honey

Interested in hobby beekeeping? Celebrating our love of bees, Beechworth Honey presents this exciting opportunity to learn from a beekeeper in-field and discover the inner workings of a honeybee hive, what beekeeping equipment you will require, and how to use it to produce your very own honey… just Bee Cause!

Beechworth Honey is passionate about helping save Australia’s honeybees – these amazing creatures pollinate two-thirds of our agricultural produce and our fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, BUT they are under threat.

As part of our Bee Cause, we encourage you to learn how to become a hobby beekeeper in our in-depth, hands-on beekeeping class. Light up the smoker and open up a live beehive in-field as you learn from an experienced beekeeper all about managing honeybees, collecting and bottling your very own honey, and how honeybees ensure your gardens, fruit and vegetable patches flourish.

Light lunch, transportation and detailed notes included.
