Out-Apiaries … Hives in Your Garden?


Are you … 

If so, we would really love to hear from you about the possibility of your being able to provide one of our beekeepers with an ‘Out-Apiary’ site.

Many of our trained Beekeepers are without suitable space or land of their own to accommodate their hives, or they want to expand the number of hives they already manage and have run out of space.

We would be interested in sites across a broad area of South East Surrey, spanning Leatherhead, Dorking, Reigate, Redhill, Capel, South Godstone, Horley for example.

We can provide advice and guidance* about the suitability of sites offered or suggested, inc:

* General advice about the suitability of a site can be found in a number of British Beekeeping Association (BBKA) leaflets, including:

‘Choosing an Apiary Site’ ( http://www.bbka.org.uk/files/library/choosing_an_apiary_site_b11_1306865400.pdf )

‘Bees & Neighbours’  ( http://www.bbka.org.uk/files/library/bees,neighbours_and_siting_hives-l011_1342859050.pdf )

We recommend that you open and read these first. They will help you to appreciate what is required and involved.

If you believe your site could be suitable, then do please contact us using our Out-Apiary Offer form (Click Here)

Thank you.
