  • What a delight! A four page spread in Platinum Magazine featuring lovely photos from Juliet Murphy and Pam Wade, in the very same month that we celebrate our 10 years of keeping bees! Check out this feature ‘Farm in the City’ all about Hen Corner…

  • Each summer, I’m quick to answer phone calls from numbers that I don’t recognise as we are in the midst of swarm season and I’ve signed up to the British Bee Keepers Association Swarm Collectors list. Whilst an unexpected visit from 30,000 bees might cause concern for many, it’s a privilege to be on hand to help collect and rehouse the honeybees hoping that they will become new strong healthy colonies.

  • We are right in the middle of the bee keeping season and whilst the Brentford Bees, from the football club, are celebrating going up into the Premier League with their fabulous new stadium, we see how the *Real Brentford Bees* are settling into their new home. Read all about it in our column in Out & About Magazine.

    Out & About – April/May ’21

    Media 21st April 2021

    As spring warms us up, we are looking forward to a great growing season, both in the garden here at Hen Corner and at our riverside allotment. Read all about it in our column in Out & About Magazine.

  • Nothing says springtime quite like a cuddle with a new fluffy chick! With a few of our hens, here at the Corner, having gone broody, let’s learn about hatching new chickens….

  • It’s time to plan potatoes! Be that big ones for baking or small spuds for salads. If you are limited with space in your garden, why not plant in an old dustbin? Read all about it in this month’s column, The Good Life in the City, in Country Living Magazine.

  • As you know, we love discovering new country pursuits whilst living in the city, so when I discovered the opportunity of some safe river swimming, not too far away, I jumped at the chance!

  • Over the last year we’ve really enjoyed our online cooking courses! Guests have discovered so many benefits of joining in from their own kitchens based all over the world. This month, we are honoured that food writer Sophie Farrah has profiled our classes along with those offered by Marco Pierre White and other Michelin starred chefs…

  • As the sun starts to shine, the honey bees venture out of the hive and we can check that all is well. If we are changing their frames of wax comb, we can clean up the old wax to make candles and beeswax food wraps. Read all about it in this month’s column, The Good Life in the City, in Country Living Magazine.
