Eve and I live on a small country property just outside Nairne in South Australia. We moved here in December 2015. It is a stunning part of the country with a great view down the valley.
As well as our bees, we run a small menagerie of 30 Dorper ewes, 2 peacocks and 2 dogs.
Currently we have just over 70 hives that keep us pretty busy producing a variety of really nice honeys that change through the seasons.
Currently we supply honey to “The Source“, who have two shops. One in Mitchum and the other in Glenelg.
I also supply honey to our local newsagent and grocery store in the middle of Nairne.
To support the beekeeping side of the business, I sell a range of beekeeping equipment that is of good quality without being too expensive.
We have a small mud-brick cottage on this property which I have converted into a classroom. It serves really well for teaching beekeeping and other workshops.
