The best way to start
The Honeybee School/ Shannon is possibly the best way to get started with bees. Shannon was very responsive to questions and concerns. We never felt like we were just a number but as if we had a mentor available if/ when we needed. All your supplies are provided so there is no guess work . We definitely recommend The Honeybee School.
Made it Easy
I have to admit, I have wanted to be a bee keeper for a long time, however prior to Shannon and Honeybee School I felt intimidated by it. Shannon has made it so easy, her enthusiasm is contagious and the instruction and videos have taken the fear away! I still have a lot to learn but am so HOOKED! Thank you Shannon and Honeybee School!
A very thorough course!
I have truly enjoyed taking this course! I felt prepared to install my bees the day they arrived because of everything that I had learned already from the course. It’s great to be able to watch the videos as often as I like plus the class notes offer the added info that I can refer back to. The one on one with Shannon makes the class that much more appealing! I’m sure you will love the class and be just as excited as I was when things start buzzing around your yard!!
Great Learning Experience
I was a little apprehensive at first about taking up bee keeping since my hive will be at a secondary home 2 1/2 hours away from where I live but Shannon made me comfortable! Its like having your own personal expert bee keeper next to you the whole time! Good quality hives and supplies included and guidance every step of the way!! Highly recommend The Honey Bee School!
Zero to BeeKeeper
From the time I first had an interest to become a beekeeper till today was about a year in a half. I started reading books and joining social media beekeeping groups. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, like this might be more than I can do.
Then I found a link to HoneyBee School and Supply from a recommendation, and after reading through their website and course descriptions, I decided to go for it. It turned out to be a great decision! Step by step instruction with text and videos. I felt extremely relaxed and confident by the time my bees arrived. Once I started getting hand-on with beekeeping, if I had any questions, there was always a really quick responses with guidance and mentorship from a true professional. You can instantly tell Shannon cares a lot about the bees and her customers!
I now have a hive up and running with approximately 80k bees in it, and I feel confident while doing my 7 to 10 day inspections. I have 2 large supers, and I am going to add my first medium super in the next week or two. Looking forward to some honey!
I would recommend HoneyBee School and Supplies to everyone!
JUST what I needed as an amateur.
Honeybee School and Shannon are exactly what I needed as a wanna-bee beekeeper. Everything we needed to get started was shipped to us ahead of time. Looked overwhelming, but wasn’t at all. Then the bees arrived in the spring. The videos walk you through everything and are available to re-watch. Shannon is always available. She’s friendly, warm, and helpful. My kids and I are loving it.
Fully emerald kit to start your journey
The Honeybee school supplies great products and knowledge. Getting to know the owner, talking bee books, asking questions and going through the content has given me the confidence to go look for my own information.
If you’re looking for a class that will not just help you learn but will also push you to ask questions, this is it. It provided all supplies you need to get started along with all the info you need to feel confident.
Shannon’s honey bee schooling experience has been absolutely fabulous!
I recommend her school especially for first timers with zero experience.
You receive a complete package with everything you need including the bees. Shannon kept us with status of the delivery of the bees through till we received them.
Shannon’s video courses are very helpful and give step by step instructions from putting together the hive, providing details of what to do from delivery of bees throughout all the days, weeks, months of keeping the hive and bees healthy.
Shannon gives direct contact via texts. Every time we had questions Shannon always answered quickly and would elaborate in depth on answering our questions; she even asked for pictures so she can check out how things progress.
Thank you Shannon for having your school which helps everyone take part with keeping essential pollinators on the planet.
Wonderful resource for beginner beekeepers
The HoneyBee School/Shannon has been a fabulous resource for a beginner beekeeper such as myself. I was gifted the beginner course by my husband and it has turned out to be an enriching experience. I love my bees! I knew nothing going into it but Shannon has everything laid out perfectly to get started on your beekeeping journey. All the supporting tutorials, equipment, bees, and personal support you will need. My hive has grown and flourished in my first season and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the expertise Shannon provides. If you’re considering getting into backyard beekeeping start here!
I’m a NEWBEE
I don’t even know where to begin… I was new to all this and going into my first days of watching videos, building my hive, painting it, picking the perfect spot – I felt great then I got the call from the post office your bees are here. Yup that “holy crap, this is real” moment was here! I talked to my bees the whole way home. They lived in my house with me for two days due to cold weather here in northern MI b4 I could install them. Exciting and nerve racking all at the same time. My first year of keeping has gone smoothly lots of questions, lots of learning and I could not have done it without Shannon. She has truly made me a successful keeper. Her knowledge, experience, patience, humor, and expertise was above and beyond my expectations. Shannon was always just a phone call or FaceTime call away. There were so many good days, some great days and yes some tough bad days too! Shannon was there for each and every one of them. I don’t know how but by some miracle I found Shannon. If you are looking for a mentor look no further. Honey Bee School is the place and Shannon is your person!
