Our Bees & Our Conservation

We became beekeepers at Cridling in 2019. We now have a thriving apiary producing lots of beautiful honey to make our Cridling honey kombucha drinks with. We are extremely responsible beekeepers and only take the absolute excess honey from the bees to ensure they are happy, healthy and thriving.

During the warmer months honeybees swarm. This is their way of reproducing. To ensure these swarms don't become a pest we often have to collect them. Here's a swarm settling into a nucleus.

Being passionate about the environment is nothing new for us, at Cridling we've been doing our bit for years. We have dedicated wildlife areas to support native species of plants, animals and insects. We have planted many native trees and have plans to plant a lot more. We have a nature pond we built specially to support amphibians and the endangered Greater Crested Newt. And, we have big plans for the future. Keep up to date with blogs to find out more.

“Since drinking Cridling I no longer suffer from persistent abscesses around my body. I would regularly have to be prescribed antibiotics. I drink one can a day and haven't needed any antibiotics this whole time”
