Honeyfields Bee Farm is a family business which was founded in 1985 by Grenville & Gill Barber who started keeping bees as a hobby in 1976. They soon saw that there was a market for producing honey on a large scale and decided to set up a commercial outfit.

In 2006 Grenville and Gill’s son Sam Barber started to work full time for Honeyfields Bee Farm. For 6 months in 2008/09 Sam worked on a large bee farm in Australia. Sam was involved in large scale honey production, the breeding and production of queen bees for home demand and export to the USA and the production of colonies of bees to be exported to the USA.

Honeyfields Bee Farm produces pure English honey, colonies of bees and queen bees for sale. We sell and supply bees to other commercial beekeepers and hobbyist beekeepers throughout the spring and summer months. Our English honey is mainly sold in bulk to other beekeepers and honey packers. The rest of our honey is packed by ourselves and sold wholesale to local shops and retail through our website with delivery. Our colonies of bees are located throughout the Warwickshire countryside on various farms and on our own premises near Bulkington.

Each year we aim to breed high quality queen bees for sale in our nuclei and for sale separately. We feel that it is important to keep breeding queen bee’s in our local area. We also import queen bees from EU breeders for use in our own colonies, to breed with, and for resale. This keeps good genetic lines in our colonies, improving colony productivity.

With over 30 years of beekeeping experience we feel we have good enough knowledge to help you with your needs. Although no year has been the same and new lessons are often learned.

Our plan for the future is to continue to expand the size of our operation, running more bees and employing more staff.
