Welcome to our little world of Bees. Michael started his bee enthusiasm back in Western Australia around 2010. We always had 3 or 4 hives around the gardens and farm. I seem to remember once or twice a year, dripping honey buckets in my kitchen and a plate of honeycomb in the fridge which he’d make all our visitors taste.
We moved to Tasmania in 2015 and unfortunately because of strict quarantine rules we couldn’t bring our hives or equipment with us.
To our delight we found two hives sitting under a green guage tree on the Tasmanian farm we purchased, which rekindled the spark. Its wasnt long and we had bought a small 3 frame spinner, some new hive boxes and tools.
Michael became obsessed with growing his hive numbers and put out a community call for any swarms needing removed. This was a success and we haven’t looked back.
