How Many Beekeepers

In the UK there are approximately 44,000 beekeepers looking after around 240,000 hives.
They produce 6000 tones of honey per year.
Each hive is worth about £400 to the agricultural economy.
We produce only 20% of the honey we consume - the rest is imported.

Beekeepers @ KSRC

Honey Bee

KSRC is the Kent Science Resource Centre, near Sittingbourne – a wonderful facility where beekeepers from all over Kent will be able to improve their knowledge of beekeeping. There is the online course booking “shop”, for KSRC-based beekeeping courses.

The courses are targeted at those who wish to improve their skills and so the courses are intended for beekeepers with at least 2 seasons’ experience of managing bees, and/or those who have acquired at least the BBKA basic certificate in beekeeping. Beginner beekeepers are directed to their local associations, where they will find lots of support for taking the first steps in beekeeping.
