The below are new ideas for 2022 based on feedback and questions. The below are very niche and specific so are not listed in the shop or products pages. I will also be undertaking only a handful of the below, so if you are interested, please drop me a mail and I can send you more information or schedule a chat.
I have been asked if someone could sponsor a hive and immediately thought of a nice certificate with a soft bee toy, like many animal sponsorship gimmicks, promptly dismissed. I have also been asked for personalised honey jars and often about how bees are managed. So after a lot of thought I am going to provide a unique service to a small number of Apis Aficionados to tick all the above. Hive Sponsorship;
The above would make an ideal and unique Christmas present and/or a good introduction to bee keeping
My bees live at out apiaries, this means that the hives are located on other peoples land. This is something I again get asked a lot about. If you are interested in hosting bees I could look at providing hives/bees and managing them. Similar to the hive sponsorship above, you would receive reports and a defined number of personalised honey jars. Note that I am based in the South Chilterns so you would need to be local to me.
There is also the potential, if you complete a beekeeping course and join your local Bee Keepers Association, to buy the hives/bees and progress with your own established apirary
To meet my obligations as a beekeeper hives/hive locations would need to be registered and access allowed to Bee Inspectors should there be an outbreak of notifiable disease locally.
