We are a company that is passionate about bees and providing a range of hive options to suit your needs. We are based in the beautiful sunny Nelson region. We want to share our passion with you!
The honey bee is vital to the New Zealand economy and since the onset of the varroa mite there are no viable feral honey bee colonies in New Zealand. Only managed hives can survive more than a year or so. With our Hire a Hive service we together will survey your property for the best location (maybe it’s on the roof) then leave the rest to us. We do it all.
WHY CHOOSE US?
We take care of everything – including: Supplying and siteing of the hive, regular visits to monitor the hive, health and wellbeing checks, honey extraction, swarm prevention and we take care of all the legal fees and registration.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
“ Our aim is to make available the joy of beekeeping to all.
We commit to sound management and wellfare of all our colonies. Help and advise to all our clients.”
