Blorenge Mountain Bees

Sustainable Beekeeping at affordable prices.

About


About
We are a small family Beekeeping business where all our Bees and Hives and Honey are locally produced. We are based around the Blorenge Mountain near Abergavenny, South Wales. We have been keeping bees as a hobby for over 15 years, with the aim of producing hardy, productive bees with a good temperament, with minimal intervention and use of chemical treatments. Our aim is to encourage more people to take up beekeeping as a beneficial and productive hobby. With that in mind are products are priced accordingly. Our bees are selectively bred from our own stocks - we never import bees or queens, and our timber comes from a local sawmill using locally sourced sustainable supplies.
