North East beekeeping is known for harsh winters and I work all Summer long to raise happy healthy bees, but there are no guarantees they'll make it through the winter or that there will be a honey surplus the first year.  

OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP….

There are many positive actions you can take to help bees:

  • Avoid the use of toxic chemicals (including pesticides, herbicides and fungicides) in your garden. Use certified organic garden products and natural pest strategies instead – they are safer, more economical and environmentally friendly.

  • Grow a bee-attracting garden with plants rich in nectar and pollen that bees love to feed on to encourage them to pollinate your food crops.

  • Provide fresh water in a small bowl for bees to access, bees can’t swim, so add something for them to stand on when drinking.

  • Buy local honey to support small beekeepers maintain hives and biodiversity.

  • Swap your lawn for a food garden or natural bee habitat. Flowers, herbs and vegetables provide a rich source of food for bees.

  • Buy organic fresh produce to support organic farmers and avoid genetically modified crops.

  • Start keeping bees at home – both urban and rural environments need bees.
