WHAT WE DO
Bees & Co. is the world’s first certified Carbon Neutral honey farm and home to the native British honeybee.
We’re award-winning, ethical bee farmers caring for bees on behalf of some of the most recognisable and iconic brands in Britain.
Our beehive adoption plans are helping to prevent the decline of the native British honeybee, whilst providing an innovative and natural sustainability solution for responsible businesses looking for creative CSR or carbon offsetting solutions.
You adopt one of our hives at our exclusive apiary sites, and we care for the bees throughout the year.
We’ll send a series of photographs and video for you to see your bees in action and use in your own promotion and marketing of your adoption - your hive can contain as many as 80,000 bees at the peak of summer!

At the end of each season you'll be able to choose to continue your beehive adoption at our specially discounted rate for each year following. You don’t need to enter any long-term commitment.
"Do we receive any honey?"
Our research shows that the majority of our clients are looking to be a part of social and environmental change solutions, so instead of ending jars of honey to your offices, we donate them on your behalf to a national food bank charity. You can purchase jars of honey for your staff or clients with exclusive access to our wholesale pricing.
