URBAN BEEKEEPERS

“With beekeeping, there is always something unexpected happening, you’re always learning. Working with a wild animal is a privilege”

With bee colonies in steep decline around the world, two Londoners are doing their bit to help maintain the species in the capital, and harvesting some of the finest honey along the way.

Since ditching their jobs as graphic designers in 2013, Chris and Paul have installed hundreds of beehives across London, tirelessly maintaining each and every one to create unique honeys for anyone wanting a true taste of their local area.
