Our bee hotel

Here at Gazeley, we have procured the services of Cardona & Son to implement and manage bees and the production of honey around our sites in the UK, with an initial focus on Milton Keynes.

Gazeley are always looking to support the environment with a wide and varied landscaping strategy, including bringing in bees to our sites.

Honey bees are disappearing globally at an increasing rate due to pesticides, disease and loss of habitat. With an estimated 1/3 of the UK’s food dependent upon pollination, the on-site apiaries will support bee population by providing a suitable habitat. In turn, local crops will benefit from increased pollination.

The Gazeley Bee Hotel has had a cracking start to the season – we have harvested a bumper crop of canola honey from the hives already this May. The hives have exceeded our expectations and yielded an enormous 24kg of raw honey already #honey #harvest
