Ampleforth Plus honey bees

Buzzing into Spring

12 March 2018 by katie.mitchell

As we finally start to see the beginning of Spring our honey bees are starting to stir. They've been keeping warm all Winter and nourished with sweet fondant from the chocolate factory!

At the end of last year the colony naturally declined to 10,000 bees, but once start to see warmer weather they will begin to build their numbers back up - we're expecting to have another 60,000 honey bees later this year, we will be using the honey in chocolates crafted in the chocolate factory.
