Our market stall is running again, find us at Hitchin market, last saturday in the month.
Unfortunately Buzzworks are unable to collect swarms at the moment, but there a number of local beekeepers who are willing to help.
You can either contact Bedfordshire beekeepers who also have a number of locally registered swarm collectors, see site below, or follow the link to BBKA, where you can enter your postcode in at the bottom of their swarm collecting page.
The BBKA site also provides useful information on how to identify a swarm of honey bees, so is worth reading before you call out a beekeeper.
We are a volunteer association that looks to help people in and around Hitchin to discover and enjoy the world of bees and to learn the craft of beekeeping. We host visits to our Buzzworks Discovery Centre where you can enjoy the bee-friendly garden, beekeeping exhibition and watch the bees at work . We also provide training courses for new and experienced beekeepers at our Honeyworks Beekeeping Centre and support local beekeepers. You can find us on Hitchin Market on the last Saturday of every month, come along for a chat and buy some of our honey.
