Our apiaries are situated in various locations, within a mile of the picturesque River Ribble, in the South Ribble area of Preston.
This gives our bees the opportunity to feed from the wealth of wild flowers growing along side the river, and everything that grows in the local farmers fields.
By situating some of our hives in local authority allotments, our bees help local growers, by pollinating all their produce for the year.
Our hives based in our local woodland, benefit from woodland flowers, and also help the local farmers by pollinating their crops.
Each of our hives have up to 50,000 native British bees in the height of summer, going down to 10,000 during the winter months.
Our busy little black and yellow friends are vital to our well-being, as they pollinate the plants that we grow for food, but, our Honey bees are in crisis. Their population is dwindling at an alarming rate, under attack from viruses, pesticides and mites.
You can help start a new bee colony, by buying a year long, 1/12 share in a hive for only £29.99.
In return you'll receive a special shareholder certificate, some wild flower seeds to attract more bees to your garden and a jar of yummy honey made especially for you, by your bees as a thank you. And up dates on your hives.
Adopt-a-hive makes the perfect gift for nature lovers, keen gardeners and honey lovers everywhere. As well as being a unique present you'll be helping to pollinate the planet and ensuring the future, not only of our little busy buddies, but also all the essential fruits and vegetables we currently enjoy.
