Gday from Anna Bay NSW Australia
« on: February 04, 2013, 11:33:03 PM »
Gday all from my home on the East Coast of NSW Australia.
I am a new beekeeper with 7 hives at the moment and my first honey after only 8 weeks from setting up:)
The hives are located on a 14 acre biological farm in the centre of a National Park, so I have a lot of goodies for my girls.
I have ligurian bees sourced from a large Queen Bee Breeder that seem to be dream bees,, hygenic,productive,vigorous,steady on the comb and also docile ,, most of the time hehe
Our farm has been utilised for many years by other beekeepers to make use of the huge amounts of Bloodwood and Paperbark that is indigenous here, in Autumn (very soon ) honey can often be extracted every 2 weeks.
Also I  look forward to chatting and sharing experiences with all of you soon very much.
Cheers
"Veiled in this fragile filigree of wax is the essence of sunshine, golden and limpid, tasting of grassy meadows, mountain wildflowers, lavishly blooming orange trees, or scrubby desert weeds. Honey, even more than wine, is a reflection of place. If the process of grape to glass is alchemy, then the trail from blossom to bottle is one of reflection. The nectar collected by the bee is the spirit and sap of the plant, its sweetest juice. Honey is the flower transmuted, its scent and beauty transformed into aroma and taste."

Sounds like you have the bull by the tail with a downhill pull!  Sounds like you have a wonderful place.  I envy you.

Would be very interested in trying some of you honey.  Do you sell it and can it be shipped to the USA?
