Village Bees


Uff-Top Banner

Bees are the perfect example of a co-operative community. They can teach us  how to live well and their work is essential for our gardens and the  health of the world at large.

The Uffington Bee Cooperative believes if  we care for bees, aid their upkeep and enjoy their honey, our individual and community’s health and wellbeing is increased.


We are a not for profit community organisation with the following objectives:-

To maintain, develop and promote a sustainable apiary in Uffington.
(An apiary is a location where beehives of honey bees are kept)

Engage the Uffington community in beekeeping and the health and wellbeing benefits this brings

Contribute towards arresting the decline in the local bee population

Invest any financial surplus into the above activities

The organisation was formed in June 2020 by four founding members, each making a financial contribution to the cooperative.The group is responsible for managing the apiary, delivering the above objectives and planning for a sustainable future.
