Welcome to Eltham Bees Limited
Hi, I'm Colin. I am a qualified beekeeper, a member of the Beefarmers association and dedicated to honeybees. I started training as a beekeeper in 2009 and have built up from maintaining one hive to over 40 commercial hives.
For those interested in what beekeeping involves, I will be writing my weekly blog which will contain all of the fun and games throughout the season, along with ideas, tips and suggestions.
You can purchase honey from:
All in a Pickle Delhi, Westmount Road SE9
Carnivore Butchers in Sidcup, 271 Main Rd, DA14 6QL
The Village Greengrocer, 2 Charlton Village SE7
The Blackheath Pantry, 12 Montpelier Vale, Blackheath SE3 0TA

I have been in engineering for 35 years and have gone on to become a welding engineer and instructor at a large London university.
I am happily married to my very understanding wife and, as well as my beekeeping, spend my spare time on my wood turning hobby and enjoying my grandchildren.
