What's included in the price?

We are located in Buslingthorpe, Lincolnshire. The day will take place around the kitchen table and the living room, we will also visit one of our apiary’s (Weather permitting) but only to view the bees through their beehive inspection window as the Natural beekeeper methodology is of minimal interference. We like to keep numbers for each course session to about six people max.

Our course will involve spending the day with us from 0930am - 1530pm (approximately) with as much tea, coffee, water as you like along with some very nice biscuits, however I must add that we also like biscuits so save some for us please.
