EPICH Bees @ Clervaux

EPICH runs a small apiary in the orchard at Clervaux Garden School in Croft.  Members of EPICH manage the bees and twice a year harvest honey for sale through the pharmacy at Rockliffe.

The Clervaux site is a very good location for bees. There is plenty of cover from strong winds and rain, Clow Beck is right next to the hives for easy access to water and plenty of rural land for them. Clervaux will also benefit from the pollination the bees will provide, there being an orchard immediately adjacent to the apiary, in addition to their many fields devoted to horticulture. Clervaux has been fantastic with cooperation.
