Bee class is a site with  information on beekeeping for  new beekeepers.

This site is supported with the sale of materials that save hours of downloading material from this site.  Check below for ordering various materials produced by Dana Stahlman over many years of beekeeping activity.

There is no fees for using this site.  It includes a complete class for beginning beekeepers, access to many old books which you can download free or order on line if you want to save time.

Next step beekeeping will help you avoid:

1)  The frustration of a bee school that does not treat you as an individual student.

2)  A common complaint from students is "everything I was taught doesn't seem to be working?"

3)  They think my questions are stupid!

It is my opinion that the best book written about the management and keeping bees is Dr. C.C. Miller's  Fifty Years Among the Bees.  A copy can be found at:   The Everett F. Phillips' Beekeeping Collection at Cornell's Albert R. Mann Library is one of the largest and most complete apiculture libraries in the world.  Their library is digitized and can be read on line.


These pages are being worked on and added.  Many are under construction and will be on line shortly.  The Next step beekeeping classes one to five have been uploaded for your use now.
