Thirty-five members and guests of Axe Vale and District Conservation Society visited Blackbury Honey Farm at Southleigh last week.
They strolled through the flowerbeds and wild flower meadows enjoying the varied flora and fauna.
Some 100 hives of free-range bees are situated in a number of apiaries around Blackbury Honey Farm, where the bees forage on a variety of farm crops, hedgerows and gardens as the seasons allow.
The business is run by Maureen and Ken Basterfield and their son Dan. They pride themselves on selling high quality, locally produced honey, beeswax and beehive products. They sell their produce through a variety of outlets including at the farm and online from http://shop.the-apiary.co.uk/
