How we keep bees


We ensure that there is plenty of forage by the hives and plant as necessary.
We don't import bees.
We do not package bees.
We only transport bees as full colonies on frames.
We only use British bred bees.
We only harvest as much honey as we believe can be done without weakening the hive.
We intervene as little as possible with the bees.
We accept swarming as part of the natural life cycle of the colony.
We will reduce the chances of swarming but cannot always prevent it.
We will collect swarms and give them a home.
We use only natural substances to treat mites in the hive.
