Follow our progress as beekeepers, running the nursery, creating our own bee-haven and conducting research into the best plants for bees

Landowners at last!

Its just over a year since made the decision to try and start a nursery and the first major milestone has now been reached: we have  bought the site. Although I am really happy about this I barely have time to pause and enjoy the moment as now the fun (!) will really starts.

For the next 4 months we will be dealing with contractors to put in tracks, foundations, power and water (it is literally a 'green field' site).  The aim is to have the polytunnel and basic services in by end October so that I can begin to start to work out my growing operations and think about some marketing.

Its both exciting and terrifying.
