Blackbury Honey Farm
Established in 2010, Blackbury Honey Farm is a purpose-built honey farm. It is the base for Ken and Dan Basterfield's commercial beekeeping activities, for queen raising, and for teaching, with excellent facilities on-site include classroom, laboratory, and teaching apiary. A range of courses from beginners to advanced are run here each year. Blackbury Honey Farm has also been open to the public since 2013, with a popular tea room, gardens, and meadow walks.
Pershore College was established as a horticultural college in the 1950's. The modern teaching and accommodation facilities sit within 60 acres of mature grounds incorporating a thriving plant centre and commercial fruit-growing and juice-making activities. Within the grounds are two active teaching apiaries, for the college and for the local Beekeepers Association. Pershore hosts regular beekeeping conferences, and for five years has been the venue for the residential summer Advanced Beekeeping courses.
