The Bee Farmer
David has had a keen interest in bees since it became a hobby in his 20’s. A life change, a decade ago, led to bee keeping becoming David’s occupation and he is now one of the few full time professional bee farmers in the UK.
David has a wealth of experience in bee keeping and offers talks, workshops and educational packages for a range of audiences. He also offers bee keeping experiences here on the farm. You can visit the bee hives, learn about bees and handle the bees, if you wish! The Bee Farmer’s honey can also be bought in our farm shop.
If you would like more information about David and his bee keeping or would like to book an experience, visit or talk; please visit https://www.thebeefarmer.co.uk
