Mayflower apiaries is a small beekeeping business based in Warrington. Colonies are kept in over 50 apiaries throughout North Cheshire. The bees forage for up to three miles so many square miles of Cheshire feed the bees and in return billions of flowers are pollinated. The main sources of nectar collected in North Cheshire include fruit blossom, dandelion, sycamore, oil seed rape, field beans, clover, lime, willow herb and balsam.

The colonies are not sugar fed and usually winter on honey, but hives short of food are given fondant in the early spring. The bees are not intensely farmed, with movement kept to a minimum. No apiary contains more than 20 hives to ensure there is sufficient forage for the bees in the area.
