  1. @Stoney I’d be pretty confident that there’s no afb spores as there aren’t many other hives in my area and I’ve inspected mine recently. But I see your point. For human consumption yeah well I’m pretty sure dehydrating will increase shelf life and mean I can sell ‘off the shelf’? I imagine it’ll involve spilling out small amounts onto a screen, sieving, then going through with a tweezers and good lighting?
  2. I wish I had a chart to help me identify some of this stuff I harvested today
  3. @Stoney cheers. Have just popped the pale into the deep freeze. I guess I’ll just keep loading up the pale one or two days per week until it’s full then try process and dehydrate it somehow. I might try keep a pale for mixing up and making spring time patties also.
  4. Hey guys, I harvested a couple kilos of pollen today. My questions are: •what the hell do I do with it? •do I need to keep in the fridge tonight or will it be ok in a pale until the morning when I buy a dehydrator. •any thoughts on the source of all the brown stuff? 80% of it is brown pollen.
  5. @yesbut got a list of them by any chance?
  6. @yesbut sounds good! Maybe they would be keen? I guess I won’t count my chickens though!
  7. How can an average person make money selling bees to overseas
  8. So basically there isnt much scope for making money. i wish I wasnt so addicted to beekeeping. Then maybe there would still be some money in my bank account ?
  9. There seems to be a huge reduction in the demand / price of hives and nucs this year. Upto 50% from last year, based on what I’m seeing on trademe. Most being re-listed too. So much for making money selling bees?
  10. @Jay cool, I’ll give it a shot. How much should it cost for the certification
  11. @Jay ok, I’ll look at lining that up somewhere locally. Once I get that I just contact mpi or something to get the ball rolling?
  12. @Jay nice. I’d like to do the same, but I need to get my license sorted. Dunno where to start. Though I do have access to a licensed kitchen.
  13. @Jay yeah kamahi flow has just really come on in the past week or so here but Rewa Rewa was prolific before that. Tastes like toffee
  14. Sounds like capped honey is no longer a sure thing
