HEREFORD BEES WAX – SEGGIN BEES
Seggin Bees started life as a hobby between partners Louise Sheppard and Nick Hall keeping two colonies of bees and selling honey from the door.
After a year or two the number of bees increased so more hives had to be built and as a result they now have over sixteen colonies, all producing honey and wax both at home and in ‘out apiaries’ around Herefordshire .
All Seggin Bees products are made by Louise and Nick, mainly from their own resources. The honey and wax from the bees, the petals and herbs which they gather and dry are from their garden.
Their prize winning wax comes from the cappings which they remove from the tops of the honey frames, carefully melted and filtered to remove impurities and used in many of the products.
Where this is not possible Louise and Nick only use ethically produced ingredients and preferably locally sourced. At all times the environmental impact of what they do is the first consideration.
