Our bees fly freely over the fields, gardens and nature reserves of Bridgend. We do not choose which flowers they visit, hence we describe our honey as 'mixed floral'.
Honey, whilst high in natural sugars, is completely fat-free. Thus it is a healthy source of energy. It is long lasting, indeed the very density of sugars means that preservatives are not required.
Our traditional beeswax polish is the best way to care for your wooden furniture. Whilst it is a little harder to apply than our cream or (if you really must) commercial silicone sprays, as well as a deep shine you will be left with a natural scent that you may remember from days gone by. True beeswax polish is the only product that can be recommended for antique furniture. Our cream is also contains beeswax and is less work in the modern world.
You can also purchase candles, or beeswax to make your own.
The associaton serves the interests of beekeepers in the Bridgend area and promotes the production of quality hive products through education, practical demonstrations and the regular exchange of views and information on beekeeping.
The association maintain their own apiary and have a full programme of events taking place throughout the year.
