I am a beekeeper based in the Cynon Valley, having returned to beekeeping after a break of over twenty years, I have now been keeping bees for around 6 years. My aim is to produce high quality local honey and other product related to honey. We supply our honey in a variety of different jars shapes and sizes, however if you have a specific need then please contact us to discuss your needs.
Our bees are a strain called ‘Buckfast’ these were breed by the famous beekeeping monk ‘Brother Adam’ at Buckfast Abbey from 1915 – 1990. They were bred for the pollen collecting, honey production and their gentleness to work with. Its bees natural instinct to swarm, this is a way bee’s leave an existing home and create a new one. We as beekeepers can manage this to a certain extent, however there many wild bees that have colonised in all sorts of places.
