BBKA Honey Survey 2017

Please take part in this important record of British honey quantities. The general public is fascinated by beekeeping, and the BBKA’s annual survey of members is the only large-scale survey about the honey crop in this country. Last year BBKA members achieved on average 26.1 lbs or 11.83 kilos of honey per hive. However, this is based on the experience of beekeepers mainly from England. This year we are inviting the Scottish, Welsh and Ulster beekeepers to join the survey so that we can gain a truly representative picture of honey and beekeeping issues across the UK. The results will be provided free to each beekeeping association.

Please could you spare ten minutes to tell us how your crop has been this year? For continuity we take a recording from 30 September each year, and you can take part in one of two ways: by completing and returning this questionnaire to BBKA HQ at the address given below or by going to the BBKA website, where it will
be highlighted on the front page, and completing the online version. Whichever way you choose please reply by Monday 9 October 2017 at the latest. Results will be published in BBKA News, but you can also request a copy by email from
All participants can be entered into a prize draw to win one of either: three pairs of tickets for the BBKA Spring Convention 2018; five Sophie Allport bees mugs, or three Burts Bees gift sets worth £15.99. This survey is being paid for from funding provided by Burts Bees, who are sponsors of Adopt a Beehive.
This survey is conducted according to the Market Research Society Code of Conduct. All results will be treated in confidence.
Thank you for taking part.
