Each spring, Turnview Farms welcomes about 30 to 50 budding beekeepers, many from the city, to an introductory beekeeping course.

From there, Turner sells a starter pack called a nucleus (or a nuke to beekeepers) consisting of four frames of bees with honey, pollen, brood (or baby bees), bees and a queen, to be installed into a new beehive.

After installation, most beekeepers check their hive once a week.
