About Chris Barlow

I am a hobbyist beekeeper, I have been keeping honey bees since 2010. I keep around 40 colonies of bees in various locations. I breed my own queens, my honey bees make honey, I make bees wax based cosmetics using wax produced by my own colonies. I use different types of bee hives currently including national, langstroth and 14*12 hives. In the past I have used top bar bee hives to. I have in the past helped with the training of beekeepers with my local beekeeping assocation which I held the post of Education Officer for 4years. This included helping train people how to keep honey bees without any prior knowledge to helping people learn more advanced skills. I hold a module one BBKA certificate.
