Hi there, I’m Julie Thorn the Bee Farmer’s Wife.
Following a 30 year career in Banking in 2016 I decided I wanted a change!
My husband Kevin Thorn had taken early retirement 6 months previously and asked me if I would like to help him with his Bee Keeping.
I knew nothing about Bee Keeping but I knew I had a lot of different skills from my time in the Bank.
So following a successful year in 2017 of marketing and wholesaling our honey I was also enjoying being creative with our Beeswax.
Our Stour Valley Apiaries honey is now sold in over 30 outlets in Suffolk and we welcome you to our Busy Bees Cosmetics website to buy online our natural beeswax products for yourself, as a gift or thank you to someone or as a personalised wedding favour.
Our Beeswax and Honey has been laboratory tested to enable us to obtain a Cosmetic Lip Balm Licence from Cosmetic Safety Consultants Ltd.
We have plans to expand our product range as there’s so much we can make using our natural beeswax, so watch this space and if you have any questions or ideas please do contact us.
Julie & Kevin
