OUR STORY

A local micro beekeeping company

Ben started beekeeping in 2014 after completing a Beekeeping Theory course with the Newbury and District Beekeeping Association in Berkshire.  After getting his first hive he was hooked and has increased his number of hives each year.

Ben's children are also lovers of bees and help out with checking the bees!

 Ben's Berkshire Bees now have two Apiaries, one in Brimpton and one in Ashmore Green. We are always interested in new places to keep bees!

Making Honey

Once the honey is ripened naturally by the bees we extract it by:

  • R

    emoving the wax capping

  • Spinning the honey in a centrafuge

  • Filtering the honey with fine mesh
