Copper Bee Apiary

A garden apiary in Whittlesford, Cambridge, UK - honey bees and their beekeeper Hilary van der Hoff.

Thank you Stephen Boulton

The beginning - 2014

I was lucky to meet Stephen Boulton, a local beekeeper who was kind enough to introduce me to the wonderful world of beekeeping. And so it was that in the Spring of 2014, I bought my own beehive and took it to Stephen's apiary, where we transferred some frames of bees into the hive. These were to be my first bees. We looked after the bees together for a while, until later that year the time came to move the hive back to my garden.
