Spring is here, at last!  It seems like it was a long, cold and wet winter but thankfully the bees all look good and colonies all have brood in them now.

We are now taking orders for nucleus colonies, which hopefully will be delivered sometime in May, but that is very weather dependent.

As covid restrictions are still in place for group gatherings, we have postponed our courses for after 17th May, please see the courses page for further details.



East Surrey Bees offer Professional Teaching and Tuition.

We run professional courses for beekeepers of all levels of experience. Tutors have teaching qualifications and extensive beekeeping experience. We have over two hundred honey producing hives and raise nucleus colonies for sale.

Beginners Practical

 Bee Keeping Course

for 2021

Starting Thursday 20th May we are running the ten week practical Beginners Beekeeping Course.

All precautions preventing Covid transmission will be taken but we hope that the learning will be the same as in previous years.

Tutors have teaching qualifications and extensive beekeeping experience.

We have 'Taster Days' for beginners, day couses on activities relating to beekeeping and also run  Corporate Days for businesses who want something a little different.

Future workshop

Practicals start in May!

Preparation for beekeeping courses in 2021 are underway and all being well we should be able to run at least some of our practical courses with Covid 19 measures in place.

We have plenty of space at the apiary so that social distancing can still be observed and most of the time we will be outside.

Honey and Hive Products

We have a range of hive products available from our two hundred plus, honey producing colonies. We produce raw honey which is extracted from a single site at a time so that you can buy honey local to you.

We also produce cut comb honey and pure bees wax candles.
