Bee Keeping

Having enjoyed Beekeeping ourselves for the last few years we are pleased to now be able to offer a range of beekeeping equipment and beginners beekeeping training courses to help and encourage others to do the same. We are constantly improving and updating our range of hives and equipment so please keep an eye on what is available: We strongly recommend beekeepers belong to their local Beekeeping Association for the advice and support they can offer. For more information please use this link to the Sussex Beekepers association - www.sussexbee.org.uk - or our local Hastings and Rother division - www.hastingsandrotherbee.org.uk

Lots more useful info can be found at the BBKA main website.
