Wild Close Bees is an apiary in Woodgreen producing small harvests of New Forest honey and beeswax products.

The family-run apiary also makes jams from local, seasonal produce, honey chocolates and fudge, as well as bee-themed silver jewellery.

Wild Close Bees also offers bespoke beekeeping experience days in the New Forest during the summer.
