Our Beekeeping Experts

We have partnered with a team of some of Australia's most passionate Beekeepers who enjoy sharing their knowledge and experiences in Beekeeping with other beginner beekeepers .

Beekeeping is a pastime that seems to have a never-ending learning curve.  Even our experts are constantly learning more about these fascinating creatures.  For this reason, having a mentor or a connection with someone that has walked before you will be immensely valuable in your beekeeping journey.

For that reason, we have joined together with beekeepers we respect deeply and know that they will look after you should you decide to confide in them as a mentor.

Often beekeepers approach the hobby in very different ways so we thought you might be interested to go behind the scenes of our Beekeeping Experts and get to know them a little better.
