Makes the perfect unique gift for food lovers, nature enthusiasts, family members and anyone for that matter, including yourself!

What is Wildacres Sustainable HiveSharing?

  • It is about enjoying the produce of the Wildacres hives to include Raw Irish Honey, Beeswax Candles, Balms and much more, all direct from ‘Brian the Beekeeper’……. Without the stings!
  • Food provenance: knowing where your food is coming from, and that it has been sustainably produced here in Ireland in harmony with the environment.
  • Reconnecting with nature: following the progress of the hives through the four seasons, with our engaging emailed updates complete with stunning pictures.
  • Having a share in the Wildacres Apiary of Beehives: as opposed to a single hive. This guarantees you a seasonal share of the produce in the event of a single hive not producing a crop of Honey.
  • The opportunity to come to the Honey Festival: held at the end of summer annually. Enjoy a social occasion with other HiveSharing members in the beautiful and tranquil surroundings of Wildacres Nature Reserve. The day will include honey tastings, walks to see the wildflower meadow and wildlife ponds, refreshments, talks on Beekeeping, an opportunity to view inside our live observation hive and to share in the excitement of the honey harvest.
