It didn’t take long for us to start to introduce wildlife to our place in Kaitoke. Here are 12 hives of bees placed there by Al who is the husband of one of my work colleagues. With the large amout of Manuka amongst the bush on our land is ideal for the bees and makes a wonderful complement to the thistles also on site.
These hives are not quite the traditional design we were expecting but on closer (but not that close) inspection it is clear that the bees don’t mind as they buzzied around doing their stuff. Can’t wait for the first lot of honey from hives on our land.
