Nicholas Kemp - Apiculture

“In our area all kinds of people are interested in bees and they’re all doing their own thing. A group of us down at Pouto want to control what bees are on our trust land and to know they are handled in a co-ordinated and healthy way. We are part of a 9500 acre property with beef-stock, sheep and trees, and bees can be another aspect of the property.”

“Six of us are doing the course with the practical and most of the bookwork done on site at Pouto but we come up here once a month for intensive study.”

“We plan to put up a purpose built honey extraction and processing shed that will be the basis of an industry on the peninsula, but first we need to get on with learning the basics.”
