CREATING A BUZZ
At ZeezBeez, we set off a few years ago to improve our smallholding for the benefit of pollinators. We found there were so few bees and butterflies around even though we live in the middle of the countryside. We have limited the cutting of our hedges and planted to encourage the creatures back and things are now improving, which is wonderful to see.
We then decided to complete the circle by adding a bee hive. Now we love bees so much that we have added further hives and want to create a sustainable little business bringing you things made from stuff the bees don't need.
Now we have loads of butterflies flapping about and all kinds of bees buzzing about Bouchland Farm - here's a picture of Mavis going about her buzziness.
ZeezBeez uses natural products from hives full of happy bees that eat their own honey, have not been treated with chemicals and are kept with the intention of letting them do what they want as far as possible – they know best!
Our honey is extracted and bottled as soon as possible after removal from the hive so it can be enjoyed “as it comes” from the comb without heating and minimal filtering. A thousand buzzy little smiles dancing on your tongue!
All our soaps, shampoo bars and lip balms are handmade here in the Taw Valley using our own beeswax and an array of other wonderful ingredients to give you a rich, creamy lather which is moisturising and smells divine.
Wax Wraps are made from our beeswax and can be used to cover food containers and wrap sandwiches.
