The Gower Honey Co-operative was set up by a couple of local bee enthusiasts in the beautiful Gower Peninsula in 2011. David says “Its been hard work to get the cooperative off the ground and early funding from the Welsh Assembly Government got us off to a good start. Honey from our members’ apiaries is now available for sale in Swansea which was a key objective for us this year. Well done to all our members who have been involved in this initiative.”
See our news page for the latest news on the development of the Coop and its honey extraction facility.
We aim to do many things around the promotion of local organic beekeeping and related products, education and awareness and bringing healthy organic bees to the fore. More information about this can be found on our Objectives page.
The co-operative had been a discussion point for some time and took root when the cornerstone members, Stefano Luporini and David O’Carroll, set up the co-operative’s first hives and in their first season hived several swarms acquiring a critical mass necessary to drive the co-operative’s initiatives.
We welcome guests and like minded people to our site and hope that you will find some information of interest or value to you here.
