The Bee People

The Bee People give us the benefit of many years of expertise in caring for the bees that are fundamental to the country way of life. As well as supplying beekeeping equipment and offering a swarm control service, they are able to offer local honey and beeswax products of the best taste and quality.  Nourishing skin creams and delicious chutney and marmalade add to the range of produce, which may be purchased in gift packs - or personalised selections made up into gift baskets.

  • About us:: We first started bee keeping in 1984 having a couple of hives in the back garden. It stayed like that for a number of years whilst we were busy bringing up our children. However, as they became teenagers, we had more time to give to the bees, and that is really when our business started to grow. Initially we expanded the number of colonies, started giving talks about bees and honey then started selling bee keeping equipment as a natural progression. We are the only traders that were at the first Farmers Market in 1997, when farmers markets were an exciting adventure and very much in their infancy. For this reason we always consider the Hailsham Farmers Market as our home market. Little did we realise what that venture would lead to and what an exciting journey it has been. Ben & Maggi Pratt
