Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Do you provide deliveries ?

We only guarantee deliveries in the event of colonized bee-hives as handling may be tricky. We can guarantee those deliveries in a 60 km range around Marions.

Do I have to register the bee-hive to the tax administration ?

New apiarists must register a declaration of the bee-hives as soon as the first colony is settled. Then, an apiarist number will be delivered to you (NAPI). You can get more information on the French public department website.

I wish to enlarge my knowledge in bee-keeping. Is it possible to only attend part of your training program ?

Indeed, it is possible to attend only part of the training. However, taking into account that the various parts of the program are, before everything else, in keeping with a consistent and long-term managing of the bee-hive, it might be better to attend the whole training in order to get a comprehensive view of the following-up cycle.

If you wish to enlarge your knowledge on a very precise point of the apiarist job or if you need any advice, please come and meet us in our store in Marions and ask us any question you may have.
