Important Note: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)
Due to the coronavirus (Covid 19) we have taken the incredibly difficult decision to close the G. Baldwin & Co stores and stop taking online orders for the foreseeable future. Please check back to the website or our social media channels for updates.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience and are working to despatch or refund any orders already placed.
Paynes was started in 1922 by Fred Payne. With just a few hives, he became well known in the beekeeping world, selling honey to the Local shops and helping many other beekeepers.
Since then, the business has grown and still family run with many hundreds of hives spread across the Sussex Downs and now supplying shops and outlets across the UK.
