National Honey Monitoring Scheme

The Findhorn Apiary participates in the National Honey Monitoring Scheme, which is important research making use of the foraging of honey bees to monitor environmental changes. We are delighted to be part of the Scheme. We receive interesting information about which plants our bees have been visiting, derived from DNA analysis of the honey. In due course we will also be provided with analysis of contaminants they experience.

The video gives a brief explanation of the Scheme.
