DVD Learning Center
You've hit the "honey hole" for learning! Congrats! Welcome to our "DVD Learning Center". If you happen to live too far away to make the drive to our classes, this page is for you. You can still "tap into" our Sustainable Beekeeping system and learn all that we do, how we do it and why we do what we do.
Also, many of you might be "visual learners", just like myself. We can read and read, but when we actually get to "see" a method or system, it just seems to click & stick with us long term. This is primarily why we decided to create this page. Over the years, we've created hundreds of great videos in order for students to increase their "Bee IQ". Take a moment and study the list of "video packages" offered below. There's so many great videos, we've packaged them together by title or subject. It's very hard to eat an entire Elephant, all in one bite. Rather, if we take "many smaller bites", over time, we can accomplish the same out come. This is why we've broken all our videos into various subjects or topics.
What interests you the most? What burning questions do you need answered? What beekeeping issue has you the most confused? Whatever it is, I'm sure the answers are inside one of our many DVD video offerings. Over the months and years, you can accumulate all of our various DVD lessons and create your own personal Sustainable Beekeeping library. This would be of huge benefit to you, and would allow you to go back and review specific topics, again and again. A smart strategy in learning, in my mind anyway.
The DVD's we use are made by Verbatim, DVD-R. A common DVD that should work in most any Lap Top or Desk Top computers. It will be your responsibility to confirm that your computer/device can play DVD-R videos. All sales are final. Depending upon how many video packages you order, you may receive more than 1 DVD from us. There are multiple videos of various lengths, in each selection. As we perform our normal Beekeeping practices, we've created many great teaching videos, with excellent tips & tricks. Each DVD is limited to about 4.7gb data. No problem. We'll still be able to fulfill your order and get it shipped out to you via USPS, as fast as possible. Each DVD is tested for proper viewing BEFORE it leaves our office. If you ever have questions, please feel free to call us at any time. Our info is on the face page of this website. Or, just CLICK HERE. Keep watching! More topics coming soon.

Honey Bees communicate through various vibration signals. If we can listen in on the colony and interpret these signals, we're better able to understand the colonies needs & concerns.

We can inspect the colony later if we'd like to do so. Weather permitting.
