Barncroft & Bees

Staff and residents checking on the hives

This year we harvested our first ever St Petrocs honey, resulting in 75 jars full from our two beehives at our service in Mount Hawke.

As well as providing accommodation for residents and their pets, Barncroft is also a home for six rescue chickens, one cockerel and 45,000 bees! These are looked after by our residents who enjoy a daily supply of fresh eggs and now honey too.
