Linnels Farm Beekeeping Course Northumberland Honey Company

Day Beekeeping Course at Linnels Farm Hexham

Since 2018 we have run a day introduction to beekeeping course at Linnels Farm Hexham.
The day course at Linnels Farm is split between half a days theory and half a days practical and is intended to give you enough knowledge and experience to be able to start your journey into beekeeping. Included is a 2 course lunch.
The course is directly bookable via Linnels Farm here. We are also more than happy to answer any questions about the course.
The first course of 2023 is scheduled for Friday 21st April.
If travelling from afar you can also book to stay at Linnels Farm too and make a mini break of it.


Beekeeping Experience and Honey Gift at Northumberland Honey Company

Beekeeping Experience

Looking for an insight into the world of beekeeping, or looking for a beekeeping gift? This could be the experience for you.

Beekeeping Experiences take place at our premises at Haltwhistle, where you will receive an introductory talk on the basics of beekeeping, an insight into commercial beekeeping, and delve into the beehive (beesuits, gloves provided) please bring suitable footwear – wellies or high boots.

Experiences are undertaken on a one to basis, but can also be booked for a couple, if booking for 2 people then 2 places needed to be booked and paid for.

If looking for a family group booking, please e-mail for a price.

Following meeting the bees you will migrate back inside to the tasting room to enjoy a tasting of the Sparkling Meads and Honey we produce.

The experiences generally last around 1 and 1/2 hours.
