Adopt a Hive Scheme


Like supporting the bees but don’t want to keep them? We have an Adopt a Hive Scheme which makes an excellent present for grandparents or children alike, who are interested in our furry friends.
Welcome to Surrey Bees. Surrey Bees’ main objective is to promote beekeeping in Surrey and provide further education and support to beekeepers. However we appreciate that not everyone has the time to keep bees or may suffer from anaphylaxis but still wish to help the honey bee population. You can now support the Bees, without the need to keep bees yourself, by buying a share in a new hive at Surrey Bees Training apiary in Pyrford, and adopting a share in a beehive. This makes a fantastic gift for grandparents or children alike.

You will receive a Goodie bag with an Adopt a Hive Certificate, plus you can come and Meet your Bees and have a hands on session in July.
