People from all walks of life are curious about bees and are considering becoming beekeepers. Over the years, so many of our customers have asked us if we can teach them how to work with bees in a sustainable way without the use of chemicals. Beekeeping can seem a little daunting at first and the initial investment in the knowledge, equipment and bees is substantial. Our goal is to simplify the process and lift the veil of mystery surrounding the amazing Apis Mellifera.

Private lessons are $175.00 for the first hour, and $75 for every hour after the first. Price is for up to 2 Adults. Additional adults are $50/per hour

If the lesson takes place in the student’s hives please note there is a $30/hour drive time and .75/mile round trip charge. Distance is based on if the the beekeeper is working out of Navasota, Austin, or Dripping Springs, TX. We always choose the closest location possible.

Our personal lesson instructors, Roosevelt and Lauren, are experienced beekeepers who love honey bees and teaching others. You can request to have Dan Weaver as your instructor. Please note his rates are $225 for the first hour and $75 for additional hours. Drive time/Mileage are the same.
