It's estimated 98% of the UK's meadows have been destroyed since 1950. Here at Neve's Bees, we're on a mission to bring back the UK's Wildflower Meadows on which our bees and other pollinators rely:
* we donate 10% of our profits to wildlife charities
* we give away packs of wildflower seeds with all orders - creating hundreds of mini-meadows (Bee Service Stations!) all over the UK
* We share hints and tips helping you & your customers to be part of nature’s recovery and feel the joy immersion in nature can bring :-)
When we first moved to this area we had the delight of dragging two bored children around various houses to find somewhere to live. On seeing a large stack of honey jars in one house, a grumpy 9 year old Neve pipes up,
“Why have you got all that honey?” to which the owner of the honey replies,
“Because I have bees”
“What, they make all that honey!”
“Yes, and they make wax & propolis and pollinate lots of flowers & trees”
Neve was blissfully quiet for the rest of the afternoon; then later,
“I think we should live in that house with those bees. I’ve spoken with Grandad Jim and he's getting me a beehive for my birthday”
Starting from this one hive, and with help from some wonderful local beekeepers and crafts-folk, Neve's Bees was born!

Have you ever looked at what's in your skin cream...why each of those unpronouncable chemicals is there...and what they're doing to your skin (and when absorbed, your body!)
Why use natural skincare? At some level, most probably think ‘natural skincare’ a good thing…but what does ‘natural skin care’ actually means, and what are the benefits? Here, we aim to clarify this…
