We are very lucky to be working in conjunction with TAHI HONEY and have a Bee Crew that works hard with our hives once a fortnight during the warmer weather. We have learnt about worker bees, drone bees, queen bees, larva, royal jelly, nectar, pollen, honey and how to care for our hives.
All suited up and ready to go. (Right)
