Here at Hive & Keeper, we’re doing things differently with British honeys straight from small scale beekeepers: that’s why each of our honeys tastes different
Hive & Keeper is putting flavour back into honey and the whole process starts with the location. A hive’s honey is a portrayal of its surroundings, so whether it’s from an orchard in the rolling hills of Cheshire, or a back garden edging onto the woodlands of the Cotswolds, every individual flower makes a difference and that’s why each hive’s honey tastes so unique. Next, the beekeeper; here at Hive & Keeper we only work with beekeepers that we've visited and know put their bees first. Our beekeepers are bee-health experts and they work tirelessly to look after each and every hive. We only work with Keepers that harvest sustainably and always leaves the bees with enough honey.

In the UK about 90% of honey is imported, we’re fighting this and protecting our most loyal workers, the bees. Cheap imports are putting British beekeepers out of business, and with each beekeeper lost to outside competition our countryside falls further into danger, so, we at Hive & Keeper are taking the initiative: we’re putting money back into beekeeping by connecting you with independent small-scale beekeepers and their honeys and rewarding all of the hard work done by beekeepers to protect our bees. We visit all of our beekeepers to ensure each one prioritises bees over honey production. On top of this, all of our packagings are 100% reusable & recyclable. So join us to help save our beekeepers, bees and protect our wonderful wildlife.
