Beekeeping in the Blood

Written by Stephanie on March 26th, 2016.      0 comments

Grandads-HivesBees have always been a part of Martin's life, you could say that beekeeping is in his blood!  Martin's granddad always had hives to feed honey to his seven children, extended family and friends.  As you can see from the photo he had quite a few.  We're not sure when he started beekeeping or whether his father was also into beekeeping but the love of bees was passed down to Martin's dad and uncle.  They both enjoyed tending to their hives when they had families of their own.  Martin remembers as a young child the hand extraction in the garage with bees flying everywhere. He developed a keen interest himself in his teenage years and eventually inherited his dads hives.

Martin says "Bees are highly resilient creatures and very interesting to work with. Visiting remote & beautiful areas in the Waikato while looking after our bees is a joy and nothing beats the taste and aroma of honey from freshly waxed frames on a warm summer’s day".
