What a superb day, lots of interest in our observation hive and our plastic beehives and of course the very first year of Blackmoor .

The in the observation hive were amongst those that had pollinated the apples and cherries at during 2016, then have those same bees producing the Blackmoor Honey was a great insight into how looking after our bees leads to essential food crop and yields gorgeous poly-floral honey.

Honey sales exceeded expectations  and we sold out of gift sets early afternoon.

The video’s of local collections and collecting swarms from Heathrow airport near the runway, were a focal point for many.
