Martina Hendry

Martina Hendry grew up in the Czech Republic, surrounded by her grandpa’s bees. While her first interest in the craft was eating honey, she now manages 30 colonies as her hobby over the weekends while working full time.  Martina is passionate about rearing and using locally adapted bees with characteristics as close to dark A.m.m. as possible.

Martina loves travelling and visiting other beekeepers around the world, developing her knowledge and practical beekeeping skills outside the confines of textbooks. 

Having worked in the photography business in the past, the Live@theHive filming and chasing Roger Patterson around the apiary with a camera is a welcome challenge.
She has also done most of the filming for the “Let’s go Beekeeping” series. 

She is currently the Secretary of the Wisborough Green BKA and is involved in teaching at the association apiary, where she is a demonstrator.
