Mark Beaton

More about our Mentor

Mark has tried a variety of beekeeping methods but focuses on traditional methods, using langstroth hives  as this has been the most successful method for him. Mark enjoys using paradise hives as they have the best insulation for the bees. Mark believes that if you look after your bees the best you can, by managing pest and diseases, the bees will look after you with honey.

Whilst Mark is at the beginning of his mentorship experience, he brings a wealth of knowledge and passion from a beginner beekeeper to progression into the boutique honey industry. 

Mark has a friendly and inclusive mentor style. No question is a silly one in Mark's eyes and he endeavours to pass on as much information as possible to help you succeed.

If you are looking for a fun, friendly learning environment with practical and expert advice, you will be in good hands with Mark.
