I have been keeping bees since 2017. A few years prior to that I picked up a book on them at a friend’s house and was so fascinated I had no choice but to attend the winter lecture series and then get a few bees for myself. Since then it has got completely out of control with more than ten hives, and I’m not sure what I did with my time before bees.

I enjoy reading as much as I can on the subject and trying new things – so a priority has been to build up to enough stocks to try different things. I also enjoy the challenge of maximising the honey crop and to that end had my first go at taking bees to heather in 2019, and I find making bit of equipment an interesting part of the hobby. Finally I am a keen brewer of beer so have been trying my hand at mead-making, with varied results.
