About Earthy Roots

A little bit about our history and brands.

What We Do

Earthy Roots Ltd. Is a natural food and cosmetics manufacturer located in Peterborough, UK. Our hives are located at different sites across Cambridgeshire, spanning from Peterborough to Huntingdon.

Earthy Roots produces honey and beeswax from our own apiaries which are among the products available for sale through our online shop. Currently we maintain three apiaries; one just outside the village of Glatton, one in the village of Water Newton and one in a market garden outside the village of Old Weston.

We believe in a sustainable approach to business and showcasing high quality ethical products. Whilst minimising the middle men from the producer to the customer.


Our first brand has been developed from our passion for beekeeping. We have been beekeeping for 10 years and have gained knowledge, experience and expanded the operation from an enjoyable pastime to a successful business.


This is our range of natural cosmetic products, initially developed under the bees brand we wanted to develop a range of 100% Natural Beeswax Lip Balms. This soon expanded to cover other ranges such as body bars and massage bars.



This is our range of preserves, chutneys, jams and pickles. Developed in house with natural ingredients. We will be launching our Jars products very soon, keep updated on our social media.

Our Future

Further developments include an increase in bee colonies, over the next two years we aim to double the amount of colonies. With the ultimate goal of maintaining 30 colonies by the end of the 2018 season, so far our expansion plans are going well and we are well on target to surpass our original goal. We are heading towards the end of the 2017 season and we currently have 23 colonies. Our new revised goal is to have 50 hives by the end of the 2018 season and 100 by the end of the 2019 season.

Our main intention is to meet like minded people and get our products in places near you. We are currently looking for shops that want to stock primarily our Balms brand, but if you want to know more or are interested in stocking any of our ranges please use our contact form. We are also open to stocking products which share our values. If you produce your own product or know of a product which fits with our values please contact us.
