Adopt a Hive
and help us save the bees
Honeybees and pollinators are vital for our food security, with 75% of food crops dependent on insect pollination to produce the food we eat. They are foundational to our ecosystems, and essential for life on our planet.
But they are under threat. Honeybee colonies all over Britain and Europe are in decline, whilst in America, bee populations are being decimated by Colony Collapse Disorder, a phenomenon which is still not completely understood.
Bees face many challenges, from loss of forage and damage from pesticides as agricultural practices intensify, to pests and diseases like varroa destructor.
Sustainable beekeeping has never been more important -
and you can help.
Adopting a hive with The British Bee Company will mean an immediate, positive impact for the environment.
Your adoption means the creation of a new colony of Apis Melifera Melifera native black bees here in the Ceiriog Valley, under the nurturing care of a beekeeper with 25 years experience.
