Beekeeping and honey

In 1978 the first beehive became two, and then three……These days we have two small apiaries at Gorfanc with 10-15 hives.   After nearly 40 years the bees are well-established and there have been good honey harvests almost every year. Our honey is well-known for its special flavour and fragrance – we can’t explain this, but we do love beekeeping and the close relationship it involves with the seasons and the weather. We always have some for sale; it is popular with Hideaway visitors as a reminder of the Welsh meadows and hedgerows where the bees forage for nectar and pollen.
