​Finally, ​​An Action-Oriented, Online Beekeeping Essentials Course ​For New & Aspiring Backyard Beekeepers

Learn ​how to be ​a successful backyard beekeeper even if ​you don't have a clue where to start!

​Why ​do you need a backyard beekeeping course if you can get "advice" for free?

​​Most backyard beekeeping ​advice sucks. ​It's filled with useless ​cheerleading, no ​​starting point, no actionable steps, and ​​hoards of bad information. ​

We've been through every possible up and down backyard beekeeping can throw at a beekeeper. Unfortunately, we've learned so many lessons the hard, painful, and expensive way because no one would show us the ropes and keep us from making ​dumb rookie mistakes.

​Unfortunately, far too many new beekeepers experience what we did when we ​got started.

All too often, ​"experienced" backyard beekeepers sit off to the side and provide shallow cheering to encourage you to get into their hobby. ​But this is only so that they can ​brag about "helping" somebody else get started. What they don't do is bother themselves to dig in and help you understand ​every step ​you need to take, leaving you to figure things out by yourself.

What's worse, ​most of the current backyard beekeeping information you'll ​come across in your quest for understanding is​, at best,​ ​incorrect and misleading ​or worse, straight up bad information. 

​Under such conditions, how in the world are you supposed to know which information ​to trust?

​For ​excited, aspiring backyard beekeepers, this incredibly confusi​ng, frustrating, and can even make the whole endeavor seem ​​hopeless.

​If that wasn't bad enough, ​pretty much ​all of the beginner beekeeping trainings you'll ​find ​being taught by "experienced beekeeping gurus" are absolute rubbish

When you're trying to get started ​in backyard beekeeping, ​history lessons on how beekeeping came to be or the latest developments in the plight of the honey bees are not helpful.

​Obviously, ​it's super ​discouraging ​to have something you want to do so badly only to find out that it's far outside your current reach. You don't want to have ​to wait to learn everything, but you don't feel like you can get started either. 

​What you're ​looking for instead is solid information that gets ​you properly oriented and ​provid​es you actionable steps to take throughout your season that will actually help​ you become a beekeeper.

​That is ​a tall order that nobody has attempted to undertake.

​We experienced all of these frustrations (and many more) because we could never find a​ resource that would help us get started ​on the right foot and bypass ​all of the painfully dumb rookie mistakes​.

So we decided to make one...

​Introducing: ​Backyard Beekeeping Launchpad​

​Disclaimer:
This ​is not a guarantee that your honey bees will survive

​We've defined a very clear goal for Backyard Beekeeping Launchpad: to help ​aspiring beekeepers learn all of the essential tasks needed to ​successfully complete an entire season of beekeeping. ​It's ​critical to have a specific purpose in mind​. It's important that you understand that this is ​about learning the basics, not ​solving all problems facing honey bees.

Nothing on this page should be construed as a guarantee that ​your bees will survive simply because you implement ​all of the recommended tasks. Beekeeping is an agricultural activity and should be understood as such. Outcomes can be highly unpredictable and ​the health of your bees can change completely with no prior warning.

We want to be 100% crystal clear that there ​are absolutely no guarantees regarding the survival of your bees​. ​No ​matter how good our coaching & teaching is or how closely you follow the instructions, things can still happen and your bees can still die. That's a normal part of being a beekeeper and it is a risk you must be willing to take​. 

Buy this course is you're anxious to get actionable ​advice and real-world experience ​becoming a backyard beekeeper. Don't buy it if you're ​ looking for ​a ​silver bullet that fixes all problems for all honey bees everywhere or want a guarantee that your bees will make it​.
