Melindwr Valley Bees in rural Wales is run by Jim Palmer, a beekeeper with many years of bee-keeping experience.
Melindwr Valley Bees is based at the mouth of the Melindwr valley, around five miles from Aberystwyth in Ceredigion. We use local Red cedar from timber growers in Wales. To continue with this local ethos I endeavour to buy, where possible, materials and goods from local suppliers, thus maintaining a low carbon footprint. Working with local timber suppliers also means that I know the timber is coming from a sustainable and managed source. My time is spent in the workshop at my home were I manufacture hives and hive equipment for customers, with the little free time I have left is then spent tending my apiaries and working on my queen breeding programme.
I take great pride in all my work and enjoy making hives and equipment. The majority of my products come fully assembled and ready for use. Here at Melindwr Valley Bees the focus is on fulfilling the customers needs, so, should you have any requests, please feel free to contact me for a flexible and friendly service.
