Honeybees Outside Beehive Moss Lane Bees The Home of Pampered Honeybees
Home About Us Nucs & Bees Contact

Hi everyone! we’re Neil & Tina the owners of Moss Lane Bees. We got into Beekeeping several years ago as our way of helping the planet. We’re not Eco-Warriors or anything like that…we are just considerate to our environment and want to ensure we protect something that is vital to our lives…

We are “Hobby” Beekeepers who always put our bees welfare before profit…this is something you should consider when you compare us and our site with many of our commercial counterparts…We are not profit driven and any excess stock sales that we do make throughout the year are ploughed back into our hobby. As you’re probably aware, beekeeping is an expensive pastime and this helps us fund our next-years beekeeping.  

Our Bees are very well cared for…to the point of being Pampered…and they seem to reward our efforts by being calm and peaceful. ..which is the perfect scenario for the hobby beekeeper.

Our Apiary  is  free from pesticides and herbicides…and to be fair, several of our village farmers are  also “bee friendly”  in their activities whenever practically possible.

A Swarm Arrives!

We thought our neighbours were having a Bonfire…but it wasn’t smoke…it was a swarm of  honeybees arriving in our back garden just before a heavy downpour.
