  1. @3$ kg only need a 90 kg crop to be viable just,maybe or if I'm lucky enough to produce dark clover 180kg. The first 66 kg 'cost of drum
  2. If theres any truth in rumour airborne paying 1.50kg clover dark 3$ clover light?? They'll be no crate for me either
  3. Who doing the importing guess that's why pollen market gone to pack aswell
  4. Precisely @Gino de Graaf every body that's supports comvita support these imports which puts us all at risk what other products are they importing? We need to stop supporting this practise why import a product nz produces?
  5. So a corporate beekeeping company that runs at a loss got the green light to import a bee product from overseas great system nz has towards bio security how long before they are givin the green light for antibiotics , beekeeping is hard enuff without these jerks
  6. I'll have spare queens in October if you need a hand, if you can handle my southern cross, lol
  7. I guess so we had a 25% loss 20 yrs ago ended up being highest production year of that time.
  8. Hell that's alot of gaps to fill kimosabhe
  9. Maybe regonal beekeeping needs to be looked at too.? Keep hives in your own region or not at all? Why dose this specify manuka plantions ? Boundary stacking both in crop and wintering ? The can of worms is to big. What goes for one goes for all? We have a migrant beekeeper takes hives away then stacks on top of us putting winter strain on our hives while they use forestry access to boundary stack on manuka to get around farms. Can I set up a beekeeping hub in a already overpopulated area ,thats ok because I move into another region to crop which is already overpopulated?
  10. I don't want to be the pessimist but our idea of a co op to put money in the beekeepers pockets... We will be competing against prices already set by companies already racing to the bottom, correct me if I'm wrong unless we the co OP could control all honey produced instead of 10-15% how can we possibly offer a better price to the beekeeper. Of the 280 members to be how many are going to give up what they have goin domestically so the cooperative has domestic sales. Thus will be a important step in developing markets overseas by pushing the brand domestically to gain exposure. Every member to be would have to change from there brand to cooperative brand. In order to gain the exposure to attempt local sales supermarkets etc. Just throwing it out there...
  11. Don't speak to loud @jamesc never know what's around the corner..😈
