English Mustard Growers

English Mustard Growers have a strong and long commitment to sustainable agriculture. ​Farming is of fundamental importance for birds and wildlife, providing breeding and feeding habitats across the UK. 

In the summer of 2014 growers took part in an on farm bee and pollinator project on a landscape scale. The aim of the project was to quantify and improve habitat, and food sources for bees and pollinators on the farms, throughout a calendar year. Since then, EMG have been valuable supporters of the BBKA, helping us with our research fund.

Hatch Mansfield

Jean-Luc Colombo is a family wine business based in the Northern Rhône in France. Their green philosophy embraces the role that honey bee plays in the biodiversity of their vineyard and are proud to support BBKA in the UK.

Honeybees pollinate more than 90% of flowering crops and so play a vital role in our food supply. In many places around the world, however, bee colonies are in severe jeopardy due to the ‘Colony Collapse Disorder’. To help fight this bee crisis, the Colombos have created the Jean-Luc Colombo ‘Bee Helpful’ program in the US, the UK and in France, with donations going to several organizations dedicated to research and development of methods to bring back the honeybee colonies.
