You asked for it and here it is!

Our beginner class has now got around 100 newbies into the craft - but many are keen to come back to take their skills to a new level.

In this class Josh is bringing a box to our paddock to be 'cut out'.  This hive has seriously cross-combed so we are going to cut them out and re-home them into frames in a new box.  This is your opportunity to learn about doing cut outs and collecting your own hives this way.  If all goes well, we hope to do a re-queen and/or a hive split and varroa mite test.

Bring your own suit this time and be ready for two hours of power beekeeping skills!
