Spring is in full bloom, so they say.
Peter is so busy he doesn't know how he'll manage all through the summer. He's looking for some motivated people interested in learning about bees, or/& sheep & getting to know about our countryside. If you know someone who is interested, or if you yourself is interested please call Peter at the number below or leave a message, he'll get back to you.
Picture on the right:
Peter discovered these two swarms of bees the other day, They are now housed in a couple of hives, so they now have a home & stability enabling them to produce propolis & honey.
Peter's sheep have given birth to quite a few beautiful lambs, both breeds (Jacob's & Shetland) and they are all doing well.
If you wish to visite Just let us know by a short mail or telephone call, Peter will find time for you.
Black Aller (BeesinDevon) honey is ethically produced by Peter's bees on Dartmoor.
Peter respects the bees & nature. The honey & honey products are produced on Dartmoor (North Bovey area) & the Cornish Valley honey near Fowey.

Snail & gnome carved in rock face. Curious? Ask me where it is, I'm sure you'd be bowled over by the fantastic display of carvings by modern artists in a rural area of SW France
We support & take part in local organic businesses in the Exeter & Newton Abott area of Devon. You can find our honey in a number of shops. You can meet me (Peter) in Exeter every Thursday morning, come rain, come shine!

Peter has kept bees since the age of 12 when he pestered his Mum for his own hive. With a lifetime's knowledge, he is often consulted about successful beekeeping, from simple hive suggestions to the latest information on fatal viruses. Peter has worked at Buckfast Abbey with World famous Brother Adam's bees.
Peter has now joined the British Black Bee (BBBee)Association with the intention of re-introducing the BBBee to Dartmoor.
Our honeys are produced by bees living out in the wild, both in Devon & in Cornwall.
The summer honey comes from bramble, heather, dandelions & tree nectars such as sycamore, oak, chestnut & fruit trees. Honey colours & tastes vary according to the flowers in season. If the honey is dark in colour & has a strong rich flavour it may mean that the flowers where the bees find their nectar is from oak or chestnut trees. By contrast honey from acacia tree flowers is a very light coloured honey with a light refined flavour. A mixture of flowers such as in Spring is usually a light to medium colour honey with a subtle flowery taste.
