We had a sweet dream….
Our journey into beekeeping started with two hives and borrowed equipment, guided by a gentleman with over 70 years experience. From the first taste of real honey, the feel of wax, the smell of the hive, the intricacies and complexities of the colony. These little creatures completely changed our lives. There is something magical about entering a bee colony. A mixture of wonder, amazement and fear. Yet if you pick your time and treat them with respect they let down their guard and let you explore. A really enjoyable feeling is working a colony with acceptance.
We believe beekeeping is mutually beneficial to both humans and bees. We give them the resources to survive and help them expand; we only take surplus honey, which allows them to feed their young the honey they worked so hard to store.
Our principle is the bees must come first; we do not relocate the bees for mono-crop pollination they have a place to call home, with an abundance of diverse nectar supply. Resulting in single batch traceable produce, local adaptation, minimal stress and keeps our bees and honey free of pollutants and chemicals.
