Everything we do

we do for the love of bees

we bet you do too – it’s probably why you’re on our site today. Through our hives, we aim to give bees the best possible living environment, while helping you to get the most out of your beekeeping experience.

We only use cedar

grown in the UK

direct from managed forests only 50 miles away in the Cotswolds. We purchase a single delivery of 26 tonnes each year, that is then milled, seasoned at our workshop and turned beehives for a genuine low carbon footprint - something that is important to us.

What does sustainability means to us

We plant a tree

With every order

run by a company called Ecologi. They plant a tree for us with every order made, this helps us offset our carbon when we deliver your hive.
