Marshfield Ice Cream

Welcoming bees to our farm!

Our farm has suddenly become a whole lot sweeter …

We are BUZZING with excitement to share the news that we’ve recently homed two bee hives here on our farm – that’s around 20,000 bees!

Why are bees important?

Not only do we welcome these bees onto the farm to help fertilise our crops, these little pollinators will HUGELY increase and sustain our surrounding pastures’ biodiversity. 

Did you know?

Because of the complete absence of manufactured herbicides and pesticides, organic farms are havens for wildlife; on average, plant, insect & bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms, creating homes for bees, birds and butterflies. 

With an abundance of organically farmed clover, brambles, hedgerows and wildflower verges across our fields, we’re confident our bumbling friends will find a haven in their new habitat.

Did you know a single bee might only produce 1 - 2 teaspoons of honey in its lifetime?

It’s safe to say we won’t be collecting this for our Heavenly Honeycomb or Honey & Stem Ginger Ice Cream just yet. But we’re very excited to share our ever growing sustainability story with you as they settle and thrive over the years.
