We are delighted that you have found our website and wish you will enjoy it.
Thank you for exploring our website to read about bees and beekeeping.
We are by no means a commercial organisation, just a beekeeper couple with a passionate hobby, located on the eastern fringe of Melbourne. Our mission is to promote beekeeping, spread the knowledge about bees and raise awareness of the issues bees are facing.
Please let's think about this for a moment:
Healthy bees are an indication for a healthy environment.
Bee health issues are being reported worldwide.
Should we be worried?
Bees can live without us! Can we live without bees?
We do not operate a "bee farm" or a "honey farm", instead we keep our beehives on other people's private land. We offer only our own products and services, hence we can sell only as long as stock lasts. We are not trading in beekeeping equipment and tools.
Without doubt do bees belong to the most precious and amazing little wonders of nature. Bees are playing a vital role in our ecosystem, providing pollination to a large variety of plants, helping to provide the food for us.
Nevertheless is the existence of bees threatened by the impact human civilisation has on the environment and the bee population is steadily declining.
If not for the sake of our bees, for our own sake we must ensure the survival of our bees.
Note: When talking about Bees, by default we are talking about European Honeybees, Apis Mellifera.
