We produce natural, premium honey using absolute minimal processing. We are ethical in our approach to running the business and wherever possible avoid single-use plastics. Our jars, lids, labels and gift boxes are fully recyclable.
We can attend events with an observation hive between May and September and can also deliver talks on bees and beekeeping – please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Unlike some producers, we can guarantee the honey you buy from us is from Leicestershire or just over the border in South Derbyshire and produced by our own bees.
In 2022 we had about 85 production hives and 30 nucleus colonies, which are a small-sized hives used for raising new bees. In 2023 we are aiming to increase both numbers of hives and nucleus colonies. We also raise about 100 queens per year.
Our honey and other products are available around the NW Leicestershire and South Derbyshire areas. - See our ‘Buy Locally’ page for more details.
We offer hives, nucleus colonies and queens for sale. Please do get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Why buy our honey...
"Temple Bees honey came highly recommended to me.
It was very easy to order it,
and the communication from the business owner,
Nigel, was really excellent and friendly.
My honey arrived straight away and it is absolutely delicious!
The freshest tasting honey
that I have ever had.
Far nicer than
anything you could buy from a supermarket or even
a health food shop.
Thank you Nigel, I will definitely order from you again"
