Having started off life as a fish farmer from Wigan, he loved the outdoor life so much that he took on an allotment, and after being denied permission to keep pigs or chickens there, he enquired about bees.
After much negotiation he was allowed 2 hives on his plot, and following an 8 week beekeeping course, was taken under the wing of seasonal Bee Inspector Pete Shaw and mentored in the art of beekeeping.
Tim has grown the business with Pete’s help and now manages over 200 hives, producing honey, wax, candles, cosmetics and all sorts of other bee products.
He also runs training days for wannabe beekeepers, teaching them everything they need to know about their own colonies, and providing a certificate and bee gifts.
For those who just want to say hello to the bees and find out how they work their magic, Tim holds experience days regularly throughout the season.
His favourite pastime is practising the art of Chi Kung amidst the buzzing of the Bees around their hives and connecting to nature. More than anything he loves the process of Queen rearing and producing colonies, or ‘nucs’, of bees for others so they too can enjoy this amazing hobby.

As well as selling beehives, and the equipment & clothing that goes with it, we produce our own honey and make a wide range of skincare products using our honey and beeswax, including candles, soaps, balms, propolis ointment and pollen.
We also raise over 100 colonies of bees each year, for sale, and for our own use, headed by young Buckfast Queens, that we breed on site at our honey farm.
Training in the art of beekeeping is provided here too, and Experience Afternoons are also catered for, to allow people to meet the bees, see them work their magic, and get a feel for this amazing hobby.
Why not pop down to meet the bees and view our range of honey products at The Hive Gift Shop.
