Local beekeepers sell their honey through various outlets throughout the Island.

Pure Manx honey, candles and other wax based products are also available at the annual Agricultural shows and the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival.

The Federation is affiliated to the BBKA and is comprised of over 100 registered beekeepers belonging to three local associations: Southern District Beekeepers Association; Western Beekeepers Association and Ramsey and District Beekeepers Association.

In order to protect our bees from disease, it is against the law for bees, including bumble bees, used beekeeping equipment and beekeeping clothing to be imported into the Island.

We have official (EU) Varroa-free status for our honey bees.

We are 1 of only 2 regions in the British Isles and also 1 of only 2 regions in the entire EU with this status.
