gorse & land for beekeeping business

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to this forum and a complete newb to bees in general. So please excuse me if I have not posted correctly etc.

 

I heard there may be people in the beekeeping business who are interested in farms with gorse, probably because it provides a food source for bees. I have a 30ha property in Wellington mostly covered in bushes and gorse. Just wondering if leasing it to beekeepers would be something worthwhile, considering the property is just sitting there at the moment and not making any use.

 

However, I don't know where to go from here as this is a unfamiliar territory for me. Any suggestions and help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Your only payment may very well be in the form of honey...

That sounds like a helluva lot of gorse.  How do you get away with that?  If it's sheltered it would be good for a local person to have a grafting yard at one end, and a major amount of nucs.  Beeks with grafting and nuc yards don't like travelling too many kms, cos of the intensity of their work.
