Sunshine in your day!
My beehives are located in sunny sub-tropical Brisbane, QLD and the bees enjoy copious amounts of sunshine all year round. As an organic minded beekeeper I carefully harvest the delicious liquid golden sunshine so you too can enjoy a little sunshine in your day. You can come for a fun tour of the Apiary (Brisbane based) and if you want a backyard beehive of your very own, I have bees for that too!
I purchased some of the "Happy Bees for Sale" and can confirm the both the bees and the buyer are delighted.
Deborah and John were really helpful, giving some great suggestions when they helped out this first-timer. My bees are flourishing and I'm looking forward to harvesting my first honey later this year.
