Our Story

the humans behind the Bees...

From our award-winning organic farm nestled on the Lincolnshire/Cambridgeshire border, Bees & Co. care for honeybees for some of the most iconic brands in Britain. We are playing an active part in helping to reverse the decline of the honeybee and through our award-winning British honey, showcasing the health and taste benefits of raw, British, artisan honey.

We provide beekeeping workshops and experience days for individuals interested in learning more about these vital pollinators and honeybee hives for adoption especially for organisations seeking innovative solutions for corporate social responsibility.

In 1900 it is estimated there were 1 million beehives across the United Kingdom by 2015 there were just 270,000

Growing up in the countryside, founding honeybee farmer and broadcaster, Jez Rose, discovered his passion for nature and the environment early in life. In 2017, he moved to a small farm to once again care for the land, turning it from a derelict space into the world's first certified Carbon Neutral honey farm.

You may recognise Jez from television including BBC1's Saturday Kitchen and Saturday Morning with James Martin and BBC radio, but his first passions are nature and conservation. We have committed to install 250 new beehives over the next 5 years and, partnering with land owners, to sow 250 acres of organic, bee-friendly flower seeds on unused land, enhancing the environment visually whilst improving biodiversity and providing vital food sources for pollinators.

Environmental Impact - positive differences

For us, caring for the environment is central to everything we do.

From planting organic bee-friendly flowers, to using recycled packaging and rewarding delegates who car share, cycle or commute with discounts - we recognise just how important the planet is and the positive impact we can all make with a tiny bit more consideration.

Modern Technology - a world first for honey

Our apiaries are covered by CCTV and some of our beehives feature state of the art monitoring technology, which allows us to review the weight, internal temperature, humidity, apiary weather conditions and bee count.

Not only does this provide us with critical information about the hives, home to our beloved bees, but offers our customers ultimate product traceability: a world first for honey.

Honey products


We believe that we have a stake in one another and that what binds us to the planet we all share, is nature.

Our honey products are paired with charities who are doing great things, from Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, to Bees for Development and for each jar sold we make a donation to help them continue to do great things.
