"Depressingly small honey crop" from British Beekeepers

The honey crop from British beekeepers remains depressingly small, just 24 lbs or approaching 11 kilos per hive, pointing to a steady decline in the crop and an increase in worries about the future of honey bees

The results of the British Beekeepers Association’s annual Honey Survey released today reveal that the average beekeeper in England produced 23.8 lbs (10.8 kilos) of honey this year – a decrease of 2.3 lbs over last year’s crop.
