I am a professional Bee Farmer in North West Leicestershire. I keep bees because I think they are important as pollinators and barometers of insect life. The bees provide honey, pollen and wax which I sell to fund my work with the bees. I also provide experience days and tailored programs for schools. My hives are within a 20 mile radius of Ashby de la Zouch and so are most of my outlets. Locality, seasonality and quality are important to me. I work with other producers using Honey as an ingredient and with those that see the benefit of unpasteurised honey
