The quince honey farm at south Milton is worth a visit if you're in the right neck of the woods..

That's a pity, but sadly some don't work out. Could you board them with another beekeeper while you try to find somewhere else, or is there just nowhere?

That's a shame. We somehow seem to get bees pitching up every year or so. Last time we thought they had died out and were about to move the boxes another swarm arrived.
