Our Apiary

Our Training Apiary was set up in 2011 with the help of a grant from the National Lottery.
It was originally based at the Barony College, part of the Scottish Rural Colleges Network, but with changes planned at the Barony, it has been necessary to find a new location, and plans are currently under way to set up a new Training Apiary close to the Crichton site in Dumfries.  We believe this will be a more accessible location for those who wish to start learning the skills of beekeeping.
