To celebrate World Bee Day, Rougham Estate Manager, Simon Eddell, went out with our resident Bee Keeper, Zac, who’s been using the Estate for 14 years to locate his hives. 
There are now a whopping 50 colonies on the Estate!
 
Bees are key to our environment and this is a great example of our farming practices and conservation management working in harmony. 

Almost 90% of wild plants and 75% of leading global crops depend on animal pollination and an incredible one in three mouthfuls of our food depends on pollinators like bees.

So here’s to our local bees, busy working today and every day. Take good care of them and if you enjoy honey, why not pick some up when you are next at the Estate!

If you go down to the Barn today… you’ll notice that there is a new car park to use and a new entrance to Roots Café and the Garden Room shop. 

During the summer months, private functions and weddings are held in the big Barn, so the shop and café will be using the “Christmas tree” car park during this time, with the entrance through the arch. New signage will show you where to go. 

There is plenty of parking and accessible parking too, with the big overflow car parks still available.

And yes, we are still open daily, 9-4 for the café and 10-4 for the shop. 
With all-day breakfasts, a sandpit for younger guests and the courtyard and decking offering the perfect summer dining location, we look forward to seeing you soon! 😁🌞👋
