Connecting with Large pollinating outfits in New Zeeland.
« on: September 10, 2012, 02:34:41 PM »
I would like to connect with Large commercial pollinators in New Zeeland.  I have a International truck license and have experience.  Would like to get to know you and possibly work for you in the future.  Thanks Tom

I don't think there are piles and piles of commercial kiwi beekeepers on the forum, so have you tried contacting some directly?  There are plenty of websites that will have contact information. 

We only have 7 hives but I wish I could get you over to help move them when I want to shift them!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Well Tom, there is a super trawler wanting to fish here, but naturally a lot of opposition to it.  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/labor-moves-to-halt-super-trawler-fishing-in-australian-waters/story-fn59niix-1226471622187    You wouldn't be able to keep bees on a boat but you could lace your food with a heap of honey.

Something like the way "it's" has an apostrophe...   :police:

Anyhow, does that mean you are a New Zealand Beakeaper?
