About Us

I was brought up around bees with my father & grandfather both being beekeepers.

As a youngster, that’s a while ago now, I helped my father, off and on over 40 years, mainly moving the hives to and from the heather.

It was almost inevitable that one day I would start beekeeping at some point in my life but work and family commitments always got in the way.

I only started beekeeping myself in 2015 when I was gifted my first hive from my father, making me the third generation of Graham beekeepers, something I am still proud of to this day.

I am very passionate about the craft of beekeeping, the conservation of pollinators and helping in the education in beekeeping.

Grahams Perthshire Honey

It gives me great pleasure to contribute to the local area with arguably the best bees and the best honey in Perthshire.

T&Cs (The Small Print)

Inspecting a colony of bees can only be carried out when the weather is fair. If it is inclement, it can adversely affect the health and temperament of the colony. It would also have limitations on what we would be able to do on your experience day.

In an instance of poor weather on the day an alternative date or a full refund would be offered. We would normally be able to make a call on this, 5 days before your day. No compensation for personal travel or accommodation expenses can be offered.

If you need to cancel your booking without rescheduling an alternative date a full refund would be offered if cancelled 5 days before your experience. After this a cancellation fee of £50 would be deducted from your refund.
