Try Paddy at Quince honey farm South Molton. I don't know if he travels that far but may know someone or ask at a show as tgey usually have a bee keepers stand
We don't fence the hives off. We were told by the keeper that if you do and cattle get in there with loads of grass around the hives they knock them over, whereas free access they graze contented around them.
Found a local chap in village. Got 2 hives here now with aiming for about 10 by end of summer.
Hi All, Bee Farmer based in Tunbridge wells Kent, have bees across a 15 mile radius and still looking for more permanent sites.
If anyone can help and would like bees on their land please let me know.
A few guys up here love to get their hives on the edge of the heather in July/August. Well worth helping for a delicious comb of lovely aromatic heather honey.
Kinda wish I had the time to do them myself. Perhaps when the kids leave home.
Heather sites are always interesting, just put them up and I will try and match a beefarmer to you.
Heather site available here. Yorkshire. PM for details if anyone is interested.
Hi all, we're a small bee farm looking for some more permanent sites or some OSR sites for next spring, both in the North Yorkshire area. PM me if interested, cheers
If you go to this site : https://www.bbka.org.uk/about/local_associations/find_an_association.php

And post your interest in hosting hives on there. There is also a for sale section for those looking to buy bees and equipment.
May be interested in hosting hives.
On the edge of a heather moor near Helmsley.
I think the hives would want a small fenced area to stop the sheep knocking them over.
Does this area have to be deducted from bps claim or are bees agricultural?
