Willie Robson and his family have been keeping bees in Northumberland since the 1950s. Few people know more than he does about honey farming with the native black bee, and fewer still have successfully kept them for so long in a commercial context.

This is one of two talks by Willie that I recorded at the 2018 BIBBA conference in Cirencester.

The Robson family run Chainbridge Honey Farm and you can see their web site at https://www.chainbridgehoney.com
