Product Description

This Overwintering Workshop will be held at our Training Center (directions below)  from 1pm-6pm Central Time. Registration required, no walk-ins accepted. 

PLEASE NOTE: You will receive detailed information via email with dates, times, etc.  Please register with a valid email.  Check your spam box if you have not received our email at least 1 week prior to the class.


Our Overwintering Workshop is a 1 day class from 1pm-6pm Central Time. Topics discussed will be pest and disease control for fall and how that can adversely affect a hive in the winter, proper feeding of a hive to get through the Midwest winters, winter wraps, feeding systems, etc. Participants are encouraged to already be beekeepers for at least the prior summer, but not required.


You may cancel a reservation up to 10 days prior to the class; after that there are no refunds for cancellations. 


This class will be held at our Training Center located at 14556 North 1020 East Road, Fairmount, IL 61841. Please follow these directions (some GPS units do not work for our location). Off I-74, take the Oakwood Exit 206. Go south into town, to 2nd stop sign (Catlin-Homer Rd). Turn left onto Catlin-Homer Rd., going down two country roads to 1020 East. Turn left, go down another 1/4 mile until you see our signs. If you need hotel information, we suggest either the Best Western in Danville (217-431-0020) Holiday Inn at 217-442-2500 or Sleepy Creek Vineyard at 217-733-0330 (only about 2 miles away). 

No need to come any earlier than 12:45 pm please. We assure you that David will be around after the class, and the store will also be open after the class, so plan on being here at the time class starts. 


This workshop is held rain or shine.  Sometimes, depending greatly upon the weather and the heat index, students go into the bee yards.  Please come prepared if we do so by wearing your protective gear, in addition to long pants, long sleeves and closed toe shoes. (Bring your gear into the classroom, don't leave it in your car). Also bring a filled water bottle. 


We have a very small gift shop here at the Training Center, which is different than our online store. Therefore, if you know you definitely need to pick up something while you are here, please call and let us know and we'll be glad to have it ready to go for you.  If you don't let us know, no guarantees we'll have it! :-)


Directions to the Training Center: Off I-74 take Oakwood Exit 206 south into town.  At the second stop sign (about 5 miles outside of town) turn left onto Catlin-Homer Road.  Go down 2 country roads (2 miles) to 1020 East and turn left.  We are about 1/2 mile down on your left.  Directions are also on Google, as well as our website.
