Beekeepers David Moore and Brett Tonks visited our friends today, and the hives continue to thrive. The bees have now populated new sections of their home and are busy laying larvae and crafting our very first honey. 2016 is going to be a great vintage.
An elite group of brave RKH folks have signed up for something rather extreme, they’ll be putting their lives in danger for the pleasure of others, they’ll dedicate moments of time honing their skills until they are rewarded with the ultimate prize - honey!
Yep, the crack team (aka Hive Society) have been busy constructing a collection of hives; now located in a secret rooftop location, in readiness for our precious delivery of bees.
Our very own designated Master Beekeeper, Mat Ots, will don his crisp white uniform and doing what he needs to do to keep our bees happy. We’ll be having keeper days to share the experience and when the honey finally arrives, we’ll host another of our Handcrafted Evenings dedicated to the precious golden nectar.
