Using Hive Products

Most beekeepers produce honey, but there are other products of the hive that can be both useful and profitable.

Any product has to be designed, manufactured and marketed and some bee products have show categories.

This page is intended to give insight into the various stages of converting your 'Hive Products' into saleable items or prizewinning show entries.

Marketing ideas are also discussed (this is a subject most beekeepers shy away from, but it is more essential than most realise.)

The section on cookery specialises in recipes and ideas that incorporate honey as an ingredient. The majority of the Recipes have been pinched from various newsletters and magazines, where the source is actually known it is quoted.
