From the many medicinal benefits of the products of the hive, that can be used in so many aspects of our lives, to learning and sharing as much as we can about these wonderful creatures. I invite you to take this journey with me and welcome your thoughts, findings and stories, photos etc, for our own  Story of the Bee.

I can honestly say that taking up beekeeping was the best decision I ever made. I have always had an interest in nature, and as a child would take myself off down the fields with my dogs, and lose myself in the adventures that surrounded me. I was lucky to live beside Lambes Orchard in Donabate, and it was lovely to experience the changing seasons amongst all the fruit trees, blackberry bushes and strawberry plants. It was also the first time I got to see a beehive up close, well not to close. I never saw a beekeeper at the hives, but in all the years I walked there, there were always bees in them. They couldn’t have chosen a better place to live!
