Rivendell Bees Honey Co

Beekeepers, and Artisans of Hive Products.

Centred in Daventry, Rivendell Bees Honey Co is dedicated to encouraging everyone to help in providing habitats and forage for not only our native bees, and managed honeybee colonies, but all wildlife - in our own gardens and allotments, community and public spaces. Even using window boxes and containers to grow pollinator flowers will help!

Many species of bee are in trouble.

With habitat loss, intensive farming methods, the over-use of insecticides and herbicides, and the

introduction of new and deadly diseases affecting feral and managed colonies, numbers are

declining with the inevitable knock-on effect on food crop

pollination, and garden and wild flowers.

98% of wildflower meadows have disappeared from the UK since the 1920s.

We want as many people as possible to join us and set aside at least one square metre for bees and wildlife.

We hope to provide islands and corridors for bees and wildlife to move through, and recover their numbers.

You can help save the bees....!

Welcome to the K9 division of Rivendell Bees!

Bruce, Scout, Fern and Woody love coming out to the apiaries, and helping with essential tasks such as digging holes for pollinator plants, then deciding they would be better elsewhere, keeping an eye on the bees, (from a distance!), helping themselves to our packed lunches, lazing about in the sunshine, 
- you get the idea!

One of our main aims is to encourage the creation of habitats and forage for our native bees, such as bumblebees, solitary bees and other pollinators and bugs.

Numbers and species have seriously declined over the last 30 - 40 years, and we should all be doing something to help them stabilise and recover.

We not only plant pollinator - friendly plants and trees at all of our apiaries, and help property and landowners to do more, we also try to assist community groups and associations to plant bee gardens, by providing plants and seeds.

We have a special fund to finance this work, and welcome any size of donations that will help in this long - term project.
