How do I find out more about bee­keep­ing in France? I’m a to­tal novice but would like to learn and pos­si­bly even­tu­ally keep a hive or two of my own. Ge­of­frey Boyd

It seems that bee­keep­ing is a pop­u­lar oc­cu­pa­tion of many ex­pats liv­ing in France and, as a re­sult, you will prob­a­bly be able to find out more through the var­i­ous on­line fo­rums. There are also sev­eral peo­ple with gîtes and B&BS who run ‘taster’ bee­keep­ing cour­ses. One is sit­u­ated south of Con­folens in Char­ente ( 13bees. co.uk/bee­keep­ing-ex­pe­ri­ences).

The web­site of the Na­tional Union of French Bee­keep­ing (UNAF) is well worth pe­rus­ing – it will un­doubt­edly give you a great deal of in­for­ma­tion of the type you re­quire and is reg­u­larly up­dated with all the lat­est news and in­for­ma­tion es­sen­tial to both ex­pe­ri­enced and would-be bee­keep­ers alike.
