Sarah Wyndham Lewis is the co-founder of Bermondsey Street Bees, a multi-award winning sustainable beekeeping practice and artisan honey business, founded in 2007. It has over 100 hives in Central and East London as well as country hives in Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk. To this day however, Bermondsey Street Bees’  base remains in Bermondsey Street itself…with the original eight hives still on the rooftop of their scenic Victorian warehouse, overlooking The Shard. Every honey produced by Bermondsey Street Bees is single-source and raw, preserving all of the nutritional benefits and rich complex flavours. Bermondsey Street Bees also pioneers sustainable urban beekeeping strategies through its forage planting initiatives, collaborations with local gardening charities and other projects including a best-selling book ‘Planting for Honeybees’.   Voted Britain’s ‘Small Artisan Producer of The Year’ in 2016, Bermondsey Street Bees has also twice been awarded ‘Best Honey in London’ (200 & 2017) as well as being named as one of London’s  ‘Top 20 Food Producers’ and ‘Top 50 Food Heroes.’

Meet Bermondsey Street Bees! They’re championing artisan honey, beekeeping and sustainable food in the heart of London. Chatting with Sarah Wyndham Lewis about Bermondsey Street Bees was a joy; her commitment to creating a truly artisan product stands out and passion for bees is infectious. This is genuine, authentic food production at its best.

Charmed by this gift of a vintage beekeeping book. From the pedagogic poetry of its title “apiculture”, to its bold gallic typefaces, its well-thumbed & honeyed pages - all cradled in crinkly-cream bouquiniste wrapping paper. Now all I have to do is to teach the bees some French!

A little like a rainbow after a storm or the sighting of a dove following a flood, we hope that this simple image of hope, purity and mutual dependitude (taken after a tropical downpour of epic proportions) will lift your spirits after days of metrological and political upheaval.

Flying yesterday, senses heightened by Storm Eunice & the ear-loops of lingering lockdown, a childhood revelation re-awakened: that the sun is always shining above the clouds. Uncancellable light above whatever clouded my horizon has been a source of strength for me ever since.

Three cheers for our restaurant clients newly awarded a Michelin star today.

Tremendous recognition of quality - and not a little perseverance - through adversity!

This @HivedHQ electric van was the only black & yellow stripy thing spotted buzzing around & about in Bermondsey on a windy, rainy afternoon. We’re big fans of their next-day cargo bike honey deliveries - although most of our pedal-powered missions are made by our office manager!
