Native British Honeybees are dark in colour, and have become rare in the UK. Adopt a Native British Queen Bee and help us prevent the decline of the UK's native honeybees.
Bees and pollinating insects are in decline, which has wide reaching impact on the environment and the pollination of crops which make up our food. We are actively working to spread awareness and increase numbers of pollinators, and you can help!
Why champion the native British honeybee?
Imported bees increase biosecurity and environmental risks, which are of significant concern to organisations such as DEFRA and the wider scientific community. Native honeybees better support their native environment.
Native bees are by their very nature better adapted to geographical and environmental challenges of the country they are from. Lincolnshire, where our farm is based, is notoriously flat and exposed to wind.
Native British bees actively forage in cold and even wet weather.
