Lampeter Beekeepers' Association

Keeping Bees, Harvesting Honey, and much more




We are a not-for-profit Organisation teaching Beginners and Experienced Beekeepers about Beekeeping.










Our Courses


Each year, in April, we run a Taster Day in Cellan, for those who want to learn the basics about beekeeping and experience handling frames of bees.  

Following on from the Taster Day, we also run a Beginners’ Course in Cellan, which runs from April to June each year. Our Beginners learn more about bee husbandry, handling bees, swarm prevention.  Practical sessions
at our teaching apiary complement the theory lessons.

Our teaching Apiary


From June to September our teaching Apiary is open to our Beginners and Members alike. 



Beginners


The Beginners’ Course includes practical sessions at our teaching Apiary where our Beginners can learn to work through the hives.  There will also be an opportunity to purchase a starter colony of local bees (when available). 
The Apiary sessions are a good opportunity to get experience of working with the bees, speak to other beekeepers and have a cup of tea and a piece of cake too.



Members


For existing Members, our Apiary Managers are looking at Queen Rearing, mite control strategies, wax purification, colony propagation,swarm prevention and maximising honey production.  Equipment is available for hire
at reasonable rates and BDI insurance is also available through the Association.
