Old Castle Farm Hives is a family run business with beekeeping experience and expertise.

Our mission is to deliver quality products at value prices. We aim to be competitively priced while providing  1st Class Customer Service.

As a beekeeper on a farm on top of a mountain in Wales it was difficult to get beekeeping supplies on a weekend when I needed them. So, I decided to set up a shop, not only to help me but to supply other beekeepers across the UK and Worldwide.
