What We Do


Since 2014 Hive Mind has been helping others to help to support Irish beekeeping and Irish bees. 


Hive Mind gives you the opportunity to take part in this adventure. Paying a yearly subscription, our customers will help to fund the management and maintenance of one of our colonies. In the Autumn customers are rewarded with the honey harvested from our apiaries.

During the summer months you will be able to keep up with the activities within our hives via regular updates and photographs sent by us following our hive inspections. 




Watching bees come and go from a wooden box is simple but wonderfully complicated.

Approached with care and a careful hand we are aware that there is rarely anything to fear from honey bees.

If we can take care of bees for ourselves and for as many people as we possibly can then we will be happy to do so.

The founders of Hive Mind are members of the County Cork Beekeeper’s Association (CCBKA).

“The bee’s life is like a magic well: the more you draw from it, the more it fills with water.

— Karl Von Frisch, Bees: Their Vision, Chemical Senses and Language
