high quality queens!

Hands-on Queen School is an exciting and challenging way to learn about the specialized beekeeping practice of raising your own queens.  Class is held on-site at TKB and you’ll have ample time to connect with instructors and peer beekeepers from across the continent.

The value of Hands on Queen School is in learning natural and industry-standard practices side-by-side in a supportive, student-centered environment.  This class is offered on a sliding scale for beekeepers with all levels of experience. 
We can offer a sliding scale for this class, too.

Online Queen School

Online Queen School is a great opportunity to learn from and connect with other beekeepers during the darker months of the year.  The content presented is much of the background theory that will be applied to the Hands On Queen School classes.

The value of Online Queen School is learning about a myriad of practices and their applications from experienced queen producers and bee researchers.  Online classes are monthly webinars where we host guest Queen Breeders from all over the continent to share their practices and stories.

Online classes are FREE!
