Start beekeeping in the new year

While the bees are tucked up in their hive

Unless you’re lucky enough to live in a warm area with year round forage, most beekeepers at this time of year, will have packed down their hives, ensuring that their colonies will be kept warm and have enough honey stores to last the winter. It’s a great time to look ahead and start planning for the new season.

There are plenty of things to keep an aspiring beekeeper busy during the colder months. These include: choosing the best hive for your needs, joining a bee club, registering as a beekeeper and learning as much as you can about bees!
