John keeps bees on the edge of fields at Kings Somborne, a lovely part of Hampshire. This one he took off in August when the bees will have been foraging across fields, hedgerows and village gardens.
Until recently John combined beekeeping with shepherding; raising lambs over winter, and then beekeeping in the spring Now he’s cut back and focuses only on the bees, working with a fellow beekeeper who’s in his 90’s, so John is called ‘the boy’!
John has an engineering mind and helped design farm machinery back in the 1970's that’s still in use today - I loved being shown it all.
We work with small scale British beekeepers who we visit to talk bees with and see the bees and landscapes that make each honey. All of our beekeepers are good custodians of their bees and the woodlands, meadows, gardens and fields they keep them in. They talk to local farmers, landowners, fellow allotment owners and councils to encourage planting for pollinators, sustainable woodland management and protecting the natural landscape for their bees. Our aim is to bring you special limited edition honeys from more and more British beekeepers: as long as they're good custodians of their bees of course!
Our jars and labels are all British sourced to keep our transport miles and carbon footprint low. We absorb the extra cost
Free 2nd class postage and packing to anywhere in the UK.
