Bee Retro


I make all my products myself and love the challenge of creating a variety of biodegradable products which help to reduce the amount of single use plastics being consumed by society. Living in Cornwall and walking my dogs on the beach each day really makes me feel determined as I see the effects of our wasteful society washing up on our beautiful beaches each day. I pick up a never ending array of plastic litter and sea garbage. My aim is to in some small way combat this problem and encourage others to do the same.

                            Wye Valley Meadery                                                
  We brew our mead in our purpose built meadery in Chepstow with honey from our bees from the Wye Valley, an area well known for its natural beauty and excellent biodiversity. There is a great concentration of small leaf lime trees here which gives our honey quite a distinct flavour. We wanted to make a mead that you can enjoy in the same way as a beer, cider or sparkling wine so we brew to a lower alcohol level than a typical mead. We also bottle condition to get a delicate sparkle into the liquid. This combined with our infusions of seasonal flavours gives us something truly unique and a real flavour of the local area. If you’d like to learn more about the process, join one of our mead making courses!

Wyefield Apiaries 

I have lived and worked mainly in Wales for the past 51 years and started keeping bees on my own account in 1967 in Pembrokeshire with the local dark bee of the area.  When my father passed away in 1982 I amalgamated his dark Ayrshire bees with my originals from Pembrokeshire and we still own apiaries of dark type bees today.  My wife, Marian is from Carmarthenshire and together with her father we expanded the bees from 1975 onwards so that when I retired from my day job in 2006 we had taken the colony numbers up to about 160. However, as our beefeed business has grown the bee numbers have been reduced to about 50 stocks of which some three quarters are headed by Danish Buckfast Queens which allows us to manage the hives under a much wider range of weather conditions.  Our aim is to average 40-45kgs of honey/hive and not to let the numbers rise too much!!
