Meet the Team
We are honeybee farmers based in Andover, Hampshire and Headley, Berkshire. We have over 200 honey production colonies sited in apiaries across the two counties. We not only sell live bees, mated queens and the associated beekeeping equipment and supplies, we also sell our own honey which you can find on our sister site.
Becky's Beezzzs was born out of a passion that we share for bees, even now with over 600 colonies to look after, many of which are for nuc production, we still find ourselves fascinated by the honeybees ability to adapt and grow in our ever changing climate and environment. Our business has slowly grown organically with the addition of seasonal workers and an apprentice under the Rowse Honey Apprenticeship Scheme.
As a small team we hope to share the incredible passion that we have for our honeybees by bringing our expertise and care to every nuc and hive that we handle. Every member of the team loves and cares for our bees like they are their own, and we love to share this in our outreach talks to local schools in addition to conducting a small amount of practical experience days throughout the season.
Becky has always been an outdoorsy person but was stuck in an office working in logistics. She left the corporate world after becoming pregnant with her second son Jake.
14 years ago she decided to take up beekeeping as a hobby after becoming fixated on ironically the actual logistics of honey production. She was mentored by two local beekeepers, one of which was Rob her now business partner. Becky's Beezzzs grew naturally from there.
Becky is heavily involved with the Beefarmer's association as she is now on the board of directors. She has a particular passion for community outreach and in the future she hopes to do more talks in schools and community groups.
Part Time Director
Rob first had bees 52 years ago, he had to give them up when he moved into the city, but he quickly picked up beekeeping again later in life.
Rob was running 30 hives when he began mentoring Becky and they decided to build a business together.
With two other businesses, Rob brings a wealth of business knowledge as well as years of bee experience to pass on to his co-workers. He is now taking a step back from the day to day beekeeping but is here to offer support and advise when needed.
