IT'S ALL ABOUT THE BEES 
 

Working with the Bee Farmer inspired by nature, driven by quality 

"I think I get as much of a kick out of day as the visitors and students"… David The Bee Farmer 
 
Below are some testimonials from folks with whom I have worked and the things have been so kind to say.......... 
Geoff and Mike - 17th June 2017 
 
David- 
Thanks so much for taking Michael and me out to meet your bees last month. It was certainly an unforgettable experience.  
 
Knowing my affinity for bees, my daughters treated me to a bee excursion with David The Bee Farmer for Father's Day. It was incredibly informative, surprising, amazing, and nourishing. Do yourself a favor and meet these astounding creatures in their own home. David will take good care of you and offer you a unique experience of Nature that you'll never forget!

Leigh from The Heritage Cake Company - 18th August 2016 
 
I had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for making it such a great experience, lots of information to inspire me and having a chance to be hands on with the bees was wonderful. I came along out of curiosity and a genuine desire to learn more because I'm interested in keeping my own bees and this was the perfect introduction - thank you so much. 
 
I will be signing up for your bee keeping class (please put me on the list and send details!). The photos are ace, thanks, I've posted them on facebook already and people are talking about them!

Jane & Neil - 5th August 2016 
 
Neil and I so enjoyed our visit today. What an eye opener into the fascinating world of our wonderful honey bees. We saw so much, guards dealing with intruders, pheromone fanning, sealing cells even a birth or two. We knew they had a far more complex life than bumble bees but being able to see it close-up and handling the frames loaded with bees was an experience we will never forget. 
 
Thank you very much for your kindness and our education into this intriguing world. 
Opus Restaurant - 31st May 2016 
Visiting David and his field of bee hives was a tremendous educational morning. I took a small group of my staff to the idyllic fields of Leicestershire to gain some knowledge about the all important honey bee. We all know that pollinators are under threat from various environmental issues, such as weather, pesticides and the Varroa mite. But until the time spent with David, I could not claim much knowledge about just how sophisticated and fascinating the honey bee is. Did you know that only 10% of eggs are male? Did you know the Queen bee can live for 3 to 4years? 
 
David treated us to a wonderful demonstration of how the hive functions and the life cycle of the bee colony. My staff, which included our executive chef, have not stopped talking about the day out and the rest of my employees are queuing up to go on another outing. 
 
David got across his love of these incredible insects and just why they are so important in our lives. 
Watch out, David, we shall be returning!!

Jane the chair of Austrey Gardening Society - 12th February 2016 
 
"Just writing to thank you for a most enjoyable evening last Friday, and what a good turnout you got!! 
Even though we all see honeybees around the flowers in our gardens I think we all tend to take them for granted and it's good for us to be reminded how amazing they actually are."
