Friends of the Bees

Together, we can make Britain a better place for pollinators!

- by creating more pollinator-friendly habitat
- by discouraging the use of 'pesticides'
- by planting and encouraging native, flowering plants
- by encouraging beekeepers to adopt more 'nature-friendly' methods
- by promoting the native, 'black' honeybee and discouraging bee imports
Are you a UK beekeeper, looking for a more bee-friendly alternative to mainstream beekeeping?

We offer £5M free Public Liability Insurance with membership.
