Our Bee Hives
We are committed to sustainability not only through waste and resource programs, but also by encouraging biodiversity. We have five beehives supporting colonies of honeybees on site, cared for by our apprentice beekeeper, Phoebe. Freedom has sponsored Phoebe to achieve a Diploma in the Excellence of Beekeeping from the Bee Farmers’ Association.
To enrich the bees’ habitat, this summer we’re embarking on a wild flower planting programme all around our natural reed bed water treatment plant. Not only will this further help with cleaning our brewing waste water. It will also support our bees in their quest for pollen to make honey.
And in the spirit of local sourcing and minimising food miles, watch this space for a flavoured honey beer using Abbots Bromley honey in the near future.
