Curiosity about bees

We are Andy and Caroline, two friends venturing out in the fabulous world of beekeeping. Discovering a shared curiosity about bees and beekeeping, we were fortunate enough to be invited to visit an apiary where we were first introduced to hives and bees. Despite many stings (clumsiness does NOT go down well when handling bees) we were fascinated.

Our story

We joined a local association and then spent a summer season visiting our mentor’s apiary, being taught beekeeping hands-on, quickly learning to be careful and gentle and how to best care for bees, checking for the health of the colony, that the queen is present and laying well and whether they need any intervention, such as syrup or pollen substitute if the weather has been bad and the bees’ stores are running low.

We started

We joined a local association and then spent a summer season visiting our mentor’s apiary, being taught beekeeping hands-on, quickly learning to be careful and gentle and how to best care for bees, checking for the health of the colony, that the queen is present and laying well and whether they need any intervention, such as syrup or pollen substitute if the weather has been bad and the bees’ stores are running low. First and foremost for us though is beekeeping and looking after our Tenacious Wee Bees. Any sale of produce is a bonus and proceeds will immediately find their way into buying more equipment.

We hope, through our website, to share some of our experiences and our hopefully improving knowledge of these wonderful creatures.
