Zac Blackmore, Suffolk

Zac started beekeeping 9 years ago and has turned it into a full time hobby.  He keeps his hives in a field just a short walk from his house.  I've seen a few apiaries now, but none as neat as his! Beekeepers are the sort of people who make things and  come up with inventive ways of re-using all sorts, as a result most hives end up with different coloured boxes, supers, and the odd repair with duck tape in my case..  Not Zac, look at how lovely and uniform his hives are- that's something I now aspire to.  These bees will have been mainly foraging on blackberry and lime.
