" The Beaufort Beekeepers Beginners course was a fantastic introduction to beekeeping, resplendent with all the knowledge necessary to build the confidence to embark on a beekeeper's life. The community that developed online was a complete bonus to a new beekeeper who is armed with some knowledge but has little hands on experience. The online support was exceptional and allowed for questions to be poised right at the time when needed and answered swiftly.
I cannot recommend this course enough for anyone thinking of dipping their toes into a fantastic new, environmentally friendly new hobby. I would never have had the courage to get my first hive without the incredible support of Dennis, Tuddy and Uli. Each, brought their individual styles and differing experiences that allowed for a vast expanse of knowledge.
Thanks a million,"
