Adopt a Hive

If you are forward thinking, have a strong interest in Biodiversity and would like to help our pollinators and support a local beekeeper, then you may want to adopt one of our many beehives containing Native Irish Honeybees.

The beehive will be located at one of our many apiaries across Cork and Dublin. Your hive will receive regular check-ups by our beekeepers.

Once you have purchased the package, we will email you for the rest of your details and inform you as to all of the process and update you throughout the season on your adopted hive(s).

In return for adopting a hive of Native Irish Honeybees, you will receive our 5 star reviewed ‘Adopt a Hive pack’ which contains the following items:

2 x jars of our 5 star rated Blossom Honey.

2 x Mini wooden honey dippers.

5 x Blackwater Honey postcards to send to family or friends.

5 x Blackwater Honey Business cards to share.
