We started keeping bees at Hen Corner in August 2011, although our journey to Plan Bee began long before then. In October 2012, at the end of our first full season, we were awarded First Prize for Best Honey in London and now run Bee Keeping courses here at Hen Corner.
May 2009 I joined the team at River Cottage HQ and held a frame of honey bees for the very first time.
August 2011 Our first colony of bees arrive here at Hen Corner.
September 2012 We collected our first full honey harvest.
Summer 2014 Our courses were often fully booked after being advertised in Country Living Magazine & Website and we were pleased to win a prize for our Honey and Oat Cookies at the National Honey Show.
Our new season of Bee Keeping Courses can be found here.
