We get our hive signs from the lovely people at Signomatic as they are cheap, durable, weatherproof and generally look good on our hives. It also makes it easier by refering to each hive by name instead of the usual "that one over there!" method of identification.
Over the last few years, we've been through several plants and herbs, some castles and a few of the Greek Gods - 16 in total. With our un-named hives at South Miford we decided to go for a different set of names - after the planets.
So say hello to Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn as they join our line-up of colourful hives!
