What sizes of nucs do you sell ?

We sell nucs in the following sizes:

National & Langstroth


Are your nucs bred here ?

Yes, although most of our queens who head the nucs are imported all the nucs are cared for and raised here in the UK.


Can I inspect the nuc when I pick it up ?

Your nuc will be all ready for you when you collect them from our us. The bees would have been sealed in earlier that day / evening . If you were to open them to inspect, you would lose too many flying bees. if you have any concerns about your nuc when you arrived home we are here to help.


What do I need to bring when collecting my nuc ?

You may want to bring a strap if you’re collecting a nuc in a poly box, other wise than that you don’t need to bring anything when you collect your bees however it is always handy to have a beesuit around when travelling with bees.


How can I make my honey runny again ?

If the honey has crystallised This is a natural process and just means the glucose has separated from the rest of the sugars due to the low temperature.

Try placing your jar on a radiator or in your airing cupboard, this should heat it up and be ready to eat again in no time.

Alternatively, place your jar of honey in a Bowl with hot water until it becomes runny again. This will dissolve the crystals and soon be ready to enjoy!


How should I store my honey ?

You should store you honey in a dry place at room temperature with the jar, or lid, securely sealed. Once opened you should store the honey in the same way.


Does honey have an expiry date ?

honey may crystallise but it it should never really go off – this is due to its high content of natural sugar. We print best before dates on all of our honeys.


Why can't I feed honey to my baby less than one year of age ?

It’s recommended that honey should not be given to infants under one year of age because of the rare possibility of being infected with the bacteria that causes botulism (Clostridium botulinum). Once a toddler reaches one year old, their digestive system is mature enough to kill any botulism.


Do you add any additional ingredients, such as sugar, to your honey ?

Nope, definitely not. Nothing is added or taken away from our honeys.


How do the bees make the honey ?

Bees start making honey, by collecting nectar from the blossom by sucking it out with their tongues. They store it in what’s called their honey stomach, which is different from their food stomach. When they have a full load, they fly back to the hive. Then they pass it on through their mouths to other worker bees who chew it for about half an hour. It’s passed from bee to bee, until it gradually turns into honey. Then the bees store it in honeycomb cells. The honey is still a bit wet, so they fan it with their wings to make it dry out and become stickier. When it’s ready, they seal the cell with a wax capping to keep it.


Where do you keep your bees ?

I have some hives in the garden the neighbours don't mind they love to see the bees about and the rest are in the area of Humberston, and dotted around grimsby so you can not get any more local. and in the Lincolnshire Wolds new for 2023.


do you cOLLECT SWARMS OF bees ?

Unfortunately not usually because bees can take too much time to remove. and it may not be possible to remove a swarm from difficult-to-reach places.
