Welcome to Simon The Beekeeper

Our aim at Simon the Beekeeper is to make beekeeping an affordable hobby for everyone. We constantly strive to provide good quality products at the best possible prices.

Harry became interested in beekeeping at the age of 10. He naturally progressed from being novice Beekeeper with 2 hives in 2015 to over 50 hives in 2023. Harry has a desire to reintroduce honeybees into his own town, as well as aiding others to do the same. His admiration and respect has kept growing for the bees that play such a vital part in the World’s ecology.

Our small team of dedicated staff are at hand to provide advice to both the experienced beekeeper and those just starting out. Be sure to check out our videos on our website and on social media.

We are proud to say that we despatch over 95% of all our orders within 1 working day1. We also offer free postage for most UK orders over £125 and express delivery options. We believe that the bees won’t wait, so why should you!

The foundation of the business evolved from Harry's passion for beekeeping and helping other beekeepers, something that has stayed with us to this day.

I have placed many orders with StBK. For many items their prices are excellent compared to other suppliers (and particularly for bee suits, their Professional range is unparalleled) and their multi-buy discounts are good value.

I recently purchased a professional bee suit from Simon the Beekeeper and on receipt found it on the small side. I couldn't have been more impressed with the courteous and efficient way I was dealt with on contacting the company regarding this issue. They exchanged the item with the minimum of fuss and the new suit fits perfectly . The quality is excellent. I will buy from this company again.

Have bought several items from Simon now. Not sure what the issues are with others, but everything I have bought arrived faster than I was told, good quality and in protective wrapping. The last items were 2 x English feeders. (prime candidates for being damaged in transit) and arrived in perfect condition.

Fast delivery, frames sent in packs of 11 which is so handy! And decent price on most products. As for other 1 star reviews, the quality of the wood products I've recieved so far are very much worth what I paid for, and couldnt complain.

I have purchased a lot of equipment off Simon over the years and have always been chuffed with the goods and service from his staff. Even with the current lockdown rules in force they are delivering goods and equipment as good as the postal service allows.
