About US
What started as a family hobby has provided us with a unique insight into the working of honey bees and the beehive. From the start we realised the importance of locally adapted bees.  For several years we have raised queens and drones for our own colonies, to improve the local strains within our area and to supply to new and experienced beekepers. We believe in buying local and are advocates of local bees adapted to our climate, each year we aim to raise a number of gentle nucleus colonies for sale or to expand our own.


 We also provide beekeeping courses and  provide guidance to experienced beekeepers. To date we have helped train close to 200 people.
Our aim is to impart  knowledge and provide the best local bees and honey in London and the surrounding counties.  Beekeeping advise / guidance and talks are provided upon request. Please get in touch for further information. -
