Making Money from Honey is an advanced beekeeping course offered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada by two seasoned Alberta beekeepers – Neil Bertram and Ron Miksha. The course will not teach you how to light a smoker or find a queen, but instead will help you earn an income from beekeeping.

Our day-long course can’t possibly cover every aspect of the finances, rules and regulations of running a beekeeping business. Consequently, we are posting some important links to websites that may help you keep your honey farm operating legally and efficiently.
