It is very hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner! It has been a very busy and exciting year for Martin and I. We have rebranded to 'Sweetree', our honeys were judged 3rd in the Taste NZ Farmers Market Awards and we have expanded into more stores around the country. You will also start to see our honey available in smaller jars which make perfect gifts and a proving very popular. On the beekeeping side we lost a number of hives over the winter due to Varroa mite, so we have been very busy getting our hive numbers up again ready for the season ahead. The bees seem happy and strong and I'm sure it will be a great season ahead - fingers crossed for favourable weather! Our boys (aged 9 & 7) are becoming more interested in the business now and love to be involved where they can, it is great to see their enthusiasm!
We are excited about what 2012 will bring for Sweetree Honey and we hope you will follow our journey with us!
