All the bees are doing well in our apiaries. This winter I have only fed one bee hive that was a late swarm in August last year and needed a slight help. Our policy is to avoid feeding.

If you are new to beekeeping now is the time to start gathering equipment and if you’re going to populate your new hive with a nucleus of bees these should now be on order with a local bee breeder. Please see our previous bee blog.

Please do use our unique Natural Beekeeping Help Line Tel 01736 785777; we will be pleased to help.

Best regards,


For information, I will take the mouse guards off our bee hives this coming weekend.
