Ross Hilliard, Ottershaw, Surrey
Ross first kept bees as a teenager in Ireland but called it a day when he went off to university. The intention has always been to start again; but like many of us work, house moves and young family were time consuming distractions! It was 2013 when he was next able to take up his beekeeping passion. Now he has several hives tucked away in a gorgeous leafy part of the Surrey countryside. With trees, mixed agricultural land, gardens and even heather within striking distance of the apiary.
