Bees & Beekeeping

Bee-sponsibilities: The machine behind the magic.

A month on since Nicola tucked the bees into bed ready for the winter months, I started to consider what this break means for our bees. What does it really take to be a part of a hive and produce that delicious honey we are all so grateful for?

Visiting HMP Hindley

A few months ago, a friend working for the organisation 'UNLOCKED' reached out to me. Unlocked is a two-year programme, designed to train graduates as prison officers. My friend had heard the word BEES and put me in touch with Daisy, who was a graduate in her second year of the scheme.

Time to put the bees to bed

During the winter months, when the temperature outside the hives falls to 14 degrees, the bees move closer together, and below 9 degrees, they eventually form a cluster around the queen. As the weather, gets colder this cluster tightens.

Hola y Adiós 👋

Less than one month ago was my first day walking through the door of Beeble's office, a recent graduate student with very little work experience. And who would have thought that I would be able to learn so much during these four weeks?

Discover Vespa Morta

Beeble Vespa Morta is the second member of our Honey Liqueur range and is a delicious Honey Vodka drink. Last week we were ecstatic to hear that it had recieved a Great Taste Award and was described as 'super sumptuous' leaving a hint of 'floral honey on the palette'!!!

Bee Pollen: The Secret Remedy for Hay Fever

Recently, bee pollen has started to be advertised for its medicinal properties and numerous benefits it can bring to one’s health. Some studies point to its ability to relieve inflammation, boost liver function, reduce stress and strengthen the immune system. 

Time for a Worker Bee to Leave the Hive

A lot has changed in the 20 months since I joined the Beeble team in September 2019. When I joined the team, Beeble sold just one product - Beeble Original Honey Whisky. Today honey whisky remains the core product, however Beeble now sells over 20 other products online.

The difference between honey bees and bumble bees

I have stroked a bumble bee in Tasmania. I was sitting outside in a coffee shop, when a huge bumble bee settled on to a pink rose. I couldn’t resist leaning forwards to stroke her. She seemed quite content and stayed for a few minutes before calmly buzzing on to the next flower to gather nectar.

HRH Prince Charles: The Beekeeper

This week I am keen to shine a light on someone I have been inspired by recently and in particular a recent project he has embarked upon - a charter for sustainability. His Royal Highness Prince Charles: a pioneering champion for biodiversity and sustainability and most importantly, an avid beekeeper!

Babies and Deities

It is quite an ordeal breast feeding, and I have resisted giving advice. I did think of an unobtrusive way to help, though: beeswax is extremely nourishing and healing. I have melted down some beeswax and added olive oil, shea butter and lavender.  I judged the quantities by the consistency.

Introducing Beeble Backs

At Beeble we often work shoulder to shoulder with conscious and inspiring individuals, people who are working towards building a brighter and greener future. Beeble Backs is an initiative we have built to celebrate these individuals, by backing someone new each month.  

The Buzz of the City

You will have, undoubtedly, heard that bees, and other pollinators, are in trouble. Our fruit, veg and flowers all rely on the valuable pollination service that bees, moths and butterflies provide. They help keep our ecosystem healthy and resilient to viruses that threaten the plants in our gardens.
