BROOKFIELD FARM Irish Honey Bee Hiveshare    

Why give one gift when you can give many? 

Give a year of bounty from Irish country bees for the ones you love with a Brookfield Farm Hiveshare. You get delicious raw Irish honey, pure beeswax handmade candles and balms. We look after the bees!

Subscribers to Hiveshare have regular communications and share in celebrations connecting you with the cycles of the seasons and life in your hive and on the farm.

This what the Irish Times said about us when we launched in December 2014:

Buzzy idea

What could be nicer than honey from your own hives? Well, it could be that someone else minded the bees, and as an added bonus made lovely natural honeycomb candlesticks and lip balm from the hive too, and delivered them to your door.

Brookfield Farm on the shore of Lough Derg in Co Tipperary is offering the chance to buy into its apiary by investing in a..... hive... ...you’ll get ...your own hive’s honey, ..... plus the candles and balm in a presentation tin, regular updates on your hive, and an invitation to the farm’s “Honey Celebration” ... when you can see your busy bees and collect your honey.

It’s a lovely idea, the brainchild of Ailbhe Gerrard who studied sustainable development and organic farming before taking over Brookfield Farm, alongside her family home, four years ago..... and the farm also sells its own lamb, in season. Best of all, you can buy the hiveshare online – just print out the order form and wrap it up nicely if you’ve been caught short in the giftgiving stakes – at brookfield.farm
