Honey, not antibiotics, recommended for coughs – BBC, 23 August 2018

Tudor Hatch Honey is trying to keep their bees in a more bee beneficial way, leaving some of their honey for them over the winter.

Also, they are introducing native Black British bee into their collection with the intention of moving away from the almost universally used hybrid types of most beekeepers.

THEIR STORY

They have been fortunate enough to acquire the wonderful setting of Hillside House in Great Shefford.

Set overlooking the Lambourn Valley we wanted to aspire to maximise the land we have available tovthem.

They keep the wonderful pure breed welsh badger faced mountain sheep and also keep rare breed Berkshire pigs.

We have been slowly renovating the gardens and grounds and have built two new rose gardens, a fruit and vegetable raised bed area, renovating an old apple orchard, planted a new tree fruit and nut orchard and built a walled Apiary.

Rest assured there is still plenty to do.

The first thing they aspired to was keeping bees.

They went on the excellent Newbury and District Beekeepers association course and became members of the BBKA and NBKA.

They were very proud to receive the Newbury Beekeepers Colonel Peake Cup along the way and continue to strive to read and seek opinions of all beekeepers to solve the many hurdles that you come across.

They are regular attendees of the association meetings and have just started writing for the local parish magazine.

They are very much still accumulating knowledge on the craft but even in speaking with some of the association members who have 50 years of beekeeping experience you never stop learning.

They are just in the process of building a second Apiary which can accommodate another 12 hives and are actively seeking new sites and hopefully providing more honey varieties and a range of accessories all from their garden and grounds.

Viv and Steve Moll’s Brightwell Bees are based in the market town of Wallingford, with hives throughout West Berkshire & Oxfordshire.

Their honey is sold in  farmshops around West Berkshire.

They have a range of products, from the local Berkshire and Oxfordshire honey produced in their hives, to the practical pure beeswax blocks that can be used to fill scratches in wood floors or even lubricate wet suit zips.

To raise bees successfully and to produce some of the finest honey requires a fondness for and, dedication to these amazing little creatures. It’s become their way of life.
