The Bee Shed

Welcome to The Bee Shed in Stock, Essex - a business run by me, Wendy Swift, providing beekeeping supplies to local beekeepers. I have available a range of hives and hive parts, frames and foundation, and tools and equipment. I provide supplies for both the experienced beekeeper and for the beginner, and I have everything a new beekeeper needs to set up an apiary.

If you’re thinking of beekeeping as a new hobby and need some advice, I’m happy to talk through everything you may need for your first honey bees.

I am an approved supplier for National Bee Supplies based in Okehampton, Devon. I provide quality products at good value, including Western Red Cedar bee hives.

I'm also a beekeeper myself. Please check out my blog on this site where I write about my own beekeeping experiences, consider the latest news about honey bees and provide information on The Bee Shed's new promotions.
