Welcome to Uli's Honey Bee's

Chips Cottage Apiaries is based in the vicinity of the local market town of Saffron Walden, Essex, bordering Cambridgeshire. We are a family run business and our operation comprises of 30 honey producing colonies and multiple bee producing hives. All our products are home produced to ensure quality.

I have more then 30 yrs of experience of beekeeping, obtained both internationally and in the UK. I provide advice and tutoring to anyone purchasing Queen Bees or Hives from me, which I run in conjunction with the Saffron Walden Beekeeping Society.

I am happy to remove swarms and established colonies from your property and will provide advice about other bee related issues such as bumble bees, wasps and hornets.
