Ham Yard Hotel - Ham Yard Hotel Bee Hives

Bee Keeping On The Roof Terrace

Placed to the rear of the garden are two bee hives which are tended to by a dedicated bee keeper. We employ eco friendly methods for bee management and hive maintenance. Bee friendly plants have also been established around the hives.

Our first batch of honey was produced in August 2015 and is used by the bar staff in the cocktail menu.  As our bee keeper explains, local honey has a wonderful complex flavour as it has not been blended or subjected to high temperatures so all the aromas of the local flowers are preserved and the health giving elements are untouched.
