Bee Keeping has been their hobby for many years which has steadily grown into a natural curiosity about all things Bee related.
Having previously imported Queens from a variety of countries, with disappointing results, they decided to attempt to breed the Queen that would be perfectly suited to thrive within their local environment.
They started Bee Keeping after being given two hives, from a farmer, that had been left behind by an old Bee Keeper.
As is the addictive nature of Bee Keeping, two soon became four and so on until they now find ourselves running two hundred hives.
Having 200 hives requiring queens means that they need to ensure that the Queens they use are of good quality and suited to the local forage available.
