I am a consultant beekeeper and Bologna trained honey sommelier. I work with individuals, land owners and businesses who want to incorporate bees into their lives, sustainably.
As a business or land owner, Paula offers start up and annual consultancy packages to suit established companies or those wanting to start with a new bee project. From initial native bee audits, repackaging and marketing of honey to content and planning for bee exhibitions. Each client is offered bespoke consultancy to create their Bee Strategy and success.

I consult globally, helping plan the best home for bees, location and management to ensure their best possible health and wellbeing. Providing content for museums, journals and websites as well as strategic planning for the bee aspect on your land or within your business.
I’ve noticed that the bees suffer from very similar complaints to humans and so have been on a quest to find places around the world where bees and humans not only live in harmony together, but also with their environment.
Having been traditionally trained in Bee care with the BBKA, I follow a treatment free approach, choosing not to use chemical medications in my hives, or to feed the bees sugar, or use smoke.
My aim is to rear strong healthy colonies adapted to their local environment.
I do not import queens or colonies.
