I’ve completed a course on beekeeping at Llysfasi College and have just up my first beehive in the garden. I’d recommend the course to anyone local thinking of getting started as a beekeeper. I’ve joined the South Clwyd Beekeepers Association which is a great support. We have regular meetings, including apiary meetings, which area great for beginners. All the experienced beekeepers that come along are brilliant at sharing their expertise.
Our house is in Efenechtyd, near Ruthin, north Wales and we run a bed and breakfast.
