Ark Birds and Bees Kent is a smallholding which is located on the outskirts of Charing; a quiet village which is nestled on the beautiful North Downs area of Kent.
The seasonal family run business was established in 2008 by husband and wife team Pat and Debbie Hillman who both share a passion for animals and country living.
Pat and Debbie's ethos is to endeavour to give the animals on the smallholding, the best care and to ensure that the animals are able to free range in as natural habitat as possible.
Due to work commitments the smallholding saw a number of changes during 2012 and the business has now been streamlined to enable the couple to focus on continuing to rear their pure bred Giant Dewlap Toulouse Geese, to continue to supply the ever increasinly popular vaccinated hybrid hens and further develop the beekeeping side of the business with the supply of beekeeping equipment and provision of bee keeping tuition in the form of one to ones and beekeeping courses.
Thank you for taking an interest and we hope that you enjoy browsing our website.
