April Association Meeting ’22

20 April 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A Year in the Life of a Bee Farmer.

Our speaker this month is Ged Marshall who is a bee farmer based near Steeple Claydon, Buckinghamshire.  The title of his talk is “A Year in the Life of a Bee Farmer“.

Ged started beekeeping when he was 15, spending a summer working for a commercial (3,000 hive) operation in France.

He got his first hives in the early ’80s and went full time in July 1989.

Building up the business, focusing on bulk honey production and more recently, queen bee production, he has worked in France, Tenerife, Denmark and at Buckfast Abbey with Brother Adam to help improve his beekeeping.

In February 2014, Ged was the first Bee Farmer in the country to be awarded with the status of ‘Master Bee Farmer‘ having reached the highest level in the art, science and craft of bee farming accepted by the Worshipful Company of Wax Chandlers and the Bee Farmers Association of the United Kingdom. He has achieved professional recognition through the licentiateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute.

His website can be found here.
