Chain Bridge Honey Farm

Chain Bridge Honey Farm is a flourishing family business, started by beekeeper William Selby Robson in 1948. In 1962, his son, ‘Willie’, took up beekeeping with the aim of expanding his father’s enterprise, not only by increasing the number of hives, but also the diversity of products. The honey house was gradually extended to include workshops and, in 1991, a very popular visitor centre. It was around this time that many new products were introduced using the vast amounts of beeswax produced. Hive numbers rose gradually over the years to nearly 2,000 today.
The farm currently employs 15 people including Willie and Daphne and their three children, Stephen, Heather and Frances.
