Holywell Mission Statement

Our mission revolves around the pivotal role of bees in our ecosystem. We acknowledge the profound significance of bees in sustaining life on our planet, particularly in the face of challenges posed by climate change. As climate change continues to exert its adverse effects, bees face mounting difficulties in their essential pollination work.

We recognize that the humble bee is of paramount importance to our continued existence on the planet. Bees provide us sustenance by pollinating our plants and ensuring our food supply. The ongoing problems associated with pesticides are a cause for real concern, and the impact of climate change further exacerbates the challenges bees face.

At the heart of our mission is the preservation of apiculture and the native black bee population on our farm. Our mission extends beyond our farm gates; it’s about inspiring and educating young beekeepers to become the stewards of the AMM bee population in Ireland. We readily share our knowledge with aspiring beekeepers, nurturing a new generation to safeguard the indigenous bee population in Ireland and providing comprehensive answers to their inquiries. Our seasonal breeding program is a testament to our dedication to ensuring the enduring vitality of Irish bees.

Each season, we implement a meticulous breeding program to ensure the sustained health and vitality of Irish bees. In our commitment to their well-being, we prioritize their health. We utilize organic essential oils and avoid harsh treatments, thus promoting their optimal health and resilience. Holywell was born from our profound love for nature, and at its core, our mission is to nurture and protect these incredible bees. Their well-being is a labour of love that we wholeheartedly embrace, recognizing that the vitality of these bees is essential for a flourishing planet, where they play a vital role in sustaining life.

“Protecting bees in the face of climate change and promoting the sustainability of Irish bees through education and responsible beekeeping practices.”
