OUR STORY

A local beekeeping company for West Berkshire

Ben, our Head Beekeeper, started beekeeping in 2014.  After getting his first hive he was hooked and has increased his number of hives each year. Now Ben's Berkshire Bees is running over 100 hives and expanding each year. 

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

 Ben's Berkshire Bees now has Apiaries across West Berkshire, located in Brimpton, Ashmore Green, Frilsham, Crookham Common, Frilsham, Midgham and Welford.

 

We are always interested in new places to keep bees! If you are a land owner please get in touch!

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
