Welcome to Paynes Bee Farm, home of the Honey bee.

This is the place to be, if you're interested in anything Honey Bee related. Paynes Southdown Bee Farms Limited, have been around for ages, since 1922 in fact. We operate around 1500 bee hives all along the South Downs area, producing our own local English honey. With all that experience, our ability to advise you about beekeeping or honey, is unparalleled and we are always glad to help new beekeepers start up, aswell as guide the more experienced ones.

Specialising in our own brand of poly hives, designed and manufactured in the UK, we strongly feel these have huge benefits for honeybees and we dramatically changed how we do beekeeping for the better. We also stock a wide range of other beekeeping equipment to help support you, whether you have 1 hive or 1000 hives.
