As migratory bee farmers, we travel to the ends of the British countryside in search of some of the most obscure nectar sources our country has to offer.
We move colonies in line with the seasons, carefully considering time frames of budding flora to ensure there is always an abundance of nectar and pollen for our colonies to thrive. Working with slow farming practices is paramount when sourcing our bee sites.
With apiaries in the rolling hills of the Shropshire Long Mynd to the contrast of the south coast, we have a specific set of rules when finding sites and are incredibly selective when it comes to the farmers we work with.
We look for beautiful and un-spoilt farmland that hasn’t been aggressively farmed or drilled in addition to working with farmers who refuse the use of pesticides and insecticides. We have partnered with organic dairies and sustainable farmers to ensure our slow beekeeping practices not only produce the highest quality honey but the welfare of the bees and the crops on which they forage are carefully protected as well.
As members of Slow Food UK and accredited to the Soil Association, we support the cause to change the way we eat, farm and care for our natural world.
