A sustainable future for honey bees is, in part, reliant on the wonderful, skilled people who nurture them – bee farmers. To support the future of honey bees, it’s vital we inspire & train the next generation of bee farmers.
Back in 2014, in partnership with the Bee Farmers Association, we launched a unique, 3 year apprenticeship scheme to equip young people with the skills & knowledge needed to become a bee farmer.
