Have you ever wondered about bees?
What do they do, how to look after them, or how we can help save them?
If so you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve been working with bees for the past eight years and they’ve become my life’s work, or perhaps I should say I have become theirs!
With my Bee Team, we keep our own bees, manage hives and colonies for individuals and businesses, including hotels, gardens and visitor attractions.
I consult globally, helping plan the best home for bees, location and management to ensure their best possible health and wellbeing.
I’ve noticed that the bees suffer from very similar complaints to us humans and so have been on a quest to find places around the world where bees and humans not only live in harmony together, but also with their environment.
Having been traditionally trained in Bee care with the BBKA, I follow a treatment free approach, choosing not to use chemical medications in my hives, or to feed the bees sugar. My aim is to rear strong healthy colonies adapted to their local environment. I do not import queens or colonies. I do however take some honey from my colonies, treating it as medicine rather than food. With my Honey sensory analysis qualifications I aim to raise awareness of the rich diversity of honeys available from around the world, but particularly the UK, believing that local is always best.
Using a variety of hives, from skeps, log and freedom, to conventional Nationals and WBCs, also experimenting with Golden, Flow and sunhives. I am learning something new everyday working with the bees and I hope to pass on the wisdom they give me onto a wider human audience.
