The early warm weather in March was the perfect start for our bees who really launched themselves into the season. Most hives have come out very strong building quickly and all need honey supers which is remarkable. I predict a record season for the bees and beekeepers alike #bees #beekeeper #localbusiness #derbyshire
We scooped up a whopping 8 awards and a trophy at our local Chesterfield Beekeepers Assocation Honey Show. We got a 1st, 2, 2nd's and a 3rd as well as several highly commended awards...we are thrilled and very proud and grateful to our beautiful bees. A year of awards for Bear Cool #bees #beekeeper #beekeeping #localbusiness #honey #honeyawards #awards #winning
It took us several days as our bees have been working incredibly hard but we have now successfully harvested the bulk of our honey 2021 and we have had a bumper year! We are very grateful to our bees and we always leave them with plenty of honey per hive as we only remove the surplus. All honey supers back on the hives for cleaning but as the weather is still great and the Himalayan Balsam is out in force the bees are filling the supers again which means a 3rd cop for us = w
We entered our first Grocers Display in the honey and hives competition at the prestigious Great Yorkshire Show and got a 3rd place! We are so thrilled and grateful 😊 #bees #beekeeper #beekeeping #greatyorkshireshow #localbusiness #awardwinning
The Bear Cool Bees are so very busy that we have had to take a crop of honey off the hives as they were packed and capped and too heavy for inspections plus we are heading into peak production. We always leave at least one full honey box on the bees but can now add new supers for the bees. #bees #honey #beekeeper #localbusiness

The first snow arrived in the Bear Cool apiary so we ensured the bees fondant was well topped up and snow and debris removed from their landing strips....we know they huddle for winter and are very successful at coping with weather extremes but we still worry our beautiful colonies will get through as we always do #lovebees #bees #beekeeping #beekeeper #localbusiness
