Welcome to our little piece of local bee heaven.

A day doesn’t go past where we don’t hear gloom and doom stories about the negative influence that humans are having on the planet, from global warming , to plastics, pollution, over population, and so on. It can be overwhelming and it’s easy to think the problem is to big for individual efforts to make any difference. Well along with others cutting and recycling plastic waste we are taking a hobby of beekeeping to the next level by helping to house honey bee swarms that can frighten some people and not knowing what to do they panic and call a pest control company. The result is often a massive loss to the bee population. A population us as human beings are totally reliable on the pollinate our flowers but more importantly our food crops.
We hope this small effort will help the bees which amaze us and are such a vital cog in the wheel of life on planet earth.

A HUGE thank you to Mr and Mrs Whittaker of Marple for contacting us about a swarm which they had on a honeysuckle bush outside their backdoor.

We were able to gently move them from the cold and wet into a box and then transport them to our apiary, where we checked on them this morning. Video below.

Yes I know its pouring down now, but this time of year water can be scarce for bees which is vital for drinking but also vital to air condition the hive. I spotted some of our bees early one morning "hovering" water droplets from leaves!!

Thinks for continued support and heads up about honey bee swarms
