This stunning hive has been painted by local artist Lauren Wilhelm to celebrate the arrival of spring and the start of a new season of beekeeping. We will be using this hive to promote the joy of home produced honey and beekeeping at various markets in the south west during October and November. We will run a competition through Facebook for one lucky person to win it at the end of November. We are adding more items to our online shop, so if you don't see what you are looking for, get in touch as we may already have it in stock and just not on the website.
Well March is over with a record 33 stings this month. The one on the nose was probably the "funniest" but out of season with Christmas and I caught quite a few funny looks with all my shrek lumps. Several lessons have been learned. When I first started bee keeping someone told me that there are 10 ways to do everything, but only 9 of them are right - i am consistently finding the 10th one.
