January - June 2015

Beekeeping Series at The Lazy B Farm

Currently, there are only 1/2 of the beekeepers that there were 25 years ago.  And yet, we depend upon bees for every third bite of food we consume.  The need for beekeepers is greater now than ever.

If you’ve ever considered becoming a beekeeper, now would be a great time!  And now is the time to get started – once spring gets here, it’s too late.


Lazy B Farm is offering an 18 hour Beekeeping Series, for the beginner, starting in January, 2015.  This is our 6th year and we offer the only beekeeping series of it’s kind in the surrounding Piedmont area.  We are fortunate to have Bill Owens, a Master Craftsman Beekeeper (the only one in GA!!) as part of our teaching staff.

Our Beekeeping Series is unique because, not only do you have time in the classroom but we also spend quite a bit of time working the beehives here at the farm.

We will help you order your bees for spring and we’ll only be a phone call away for any questions you might have once your bees are at your place!

Here you will find the class dates and descriptions, fees, and registration (we have discounts for couples!)
