I'm Thom Carey creator of "My hive Tool" A Comprehensive guide to beekeeping. I'm offering both private and group beekeeping lessons at my Bee Farm in Sale City Georgia. Sale City is located and hour South of Albany Georgia in Mitchell County.
Maybe your like me and you have always wanted to keep honey bees. So what is stopping you? By taking one of our Beekeeping class based on the information in "My Hive Tool" A Comprehensive guide to beekeeping you will know what you are doing before you jump in. I teach all our beekeeping classes personally. Be well informed before you start keeping bees by enrolling in one of our beekeeping classes.
Taking a beekeeping class is essential for today's new beekeepers. There is a push to make beekeeping appear practically hands-free. New beekeepers are failing to implement best management practices. I want to be your mentor. I have spent years keeping bees, Producing honey, crop pollination, removing bees from homes, speaking and writing about bees. Facebook me if you have any questions about bees or beekeeping. Our classes for 2017 are filling up faster then ever before. Learn how to keep bees with this hands-on course that teaches you how to start, maintain and care for your bees.
