  1. @nikki watts that block there has both manuka an kanuka...that is the kanuka flowering now. The manuka is stored all in and around the brood frames!! 😲
  2. Cant say iv seen the series,makes me shudder to think of the amount they process/take. My contact on the east coast up here was telling me about the antics of a nationally known mussel producer who are now banned from their area...nightime diving,multiple tank setups etc etc
  3. Yes it was a busy day for a day off...left home at 5am,got back thru the gate at 9pm.Bit more than a petrie dish...i called it an "entree for my missus". As for selfies,well it easier taking the pics before u start working hives or after,pain in the butt when gloved up an they covered in nectar,propolis or wateva else an trying to do And yes a wee taste of kina ,Oma😊
  4. Beautiful day on thurs,trailer refurb completed so tiki toured up the east coast,prospecting ,inspecting,supering and snorkelling...
  5. Cant say really,may have been crook or possibly ,my thinking, would be to do with the processing of it after being shot. Iv never eaten any wild pork that was revolting.
  6. @Stoney Yum! @kaihoka was going to say yum too but you might of been offended,sows in good nick are good eating tho
  7. Time out on the Barrier earlier this month and even managed a bo peep at some local hives with an awesome host
  8. @M4tt I hope not mate...no these were around town,i have my name at the district council office as a swarm collector/ beekeeper.
  9. This year has been particularly swarmy in our little corner of the motu...my 2nd an third swarms for the season..
  10. Kia ora ,yes, but i put that down to not enough nectar flow,cos as you can see in my above pics,come spring time every waxed frame gets drawn beautifully. Usually get pakaru drawing of frames in honey supers,f too late for flow,or too many supers on the hive.
  11. Nice little apiary this one,lotsa tucker about...splits taken from strongest hives,all these queens have come thru winter and looking good atm.
  12. ah,so the rain not good for flowering? I thought it would be a pick me up for the plant and encourage longer flowering,so long as we get another good spell of hot weather.
  13. @AlastairHow did you get on with your labels Alastair? Im looking into some as well and thought those companies/business who already print honey labels would know all the requirements needed to comply with local and international regulations.
  14. Im thinking, there is a lot of talk about leaving bush honey on hives cos it not worth much...if someone has a market an selling overseas ,whats the chances of that beiing shared to other bush producers? Im keen to pursue this avenue.
