This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

This is a beekeeping class for the curious! Come find out why there’s so much buzz about bees and determine if beekeeping at home or at Tamarack might be in your future. While not a comprehensive class for new beekeepers, this class will definitely get new beekeepers headed in the right direction. We’ll discuss basic bee biology and ecology, beekeeping tools and equipment, the costs associated with beekeeping  and bee resources available in the Twin Cities. Plus, honey tasting will be part of our sweet afternoon snack!
