WHY BEES & CO.?
We work with clients including some of the most iconic brands in Britain in a wide range of sectors: hospitality; creative; retail, and automotive, including The Ned hotel in London; Tom Sellers’ Michelin-starred Restaurant Story and Sophie Allport.
One thing that connects all our corporate adoption clients is the understanding of how important it is to demonstrate how they are a responsible business.
Simply talking about “doing your bit” is no longer enough – you need to be seen to be acting, and with a clearly positive outcome. Responsible businesses are doing their bit to help prevent the decline of pollinators including the critical native honeybee population in Britain, and the subsequent environmental impact, with our innovative beehive adoption plans.

"What happens to our bees at the end of our adoption?"
At the end of each season you'll be able to choose to continue your beehive adoption. You don’t need to enter any long-term commitment and can upgrade your plan at any time.
"When will we receive our honey?"
The active beekeeping season begins in the Spring when the weather warms and the bees actively begin foraging, and lasts through to the end of Autumn, around late September. However, it is weather dependant and our bees have often been active right into November! We harvest twice a year: Spring set honey and Summer runny honey and ship once at the end of the year around the start of October.
