Fruit and Crop Pollination

Blog Single
 

In the spring months before our bees start to produce their honey crop, they set to work producing many more tonnes of other crops by pollinating orchards throughout Hawke's Bay.

We supply quality hives when and where growers need them, providing the best possible pollination to commercial crops of:

  • apples
  • blueberries
  • kiwifruit (green and gold)
  • peaches
  • plums
  • squash

Clover and Pasture Pollination

Blog Single
 

After their early spring pollination work, our hives settle back on their permanent farm sites where they spend the rest of the year pollinating clover and other pasture species for farmers while they make their honey crop.

Clover pollination increases the proportion of white clover in the sward, which in turn fixes more nitrogen in the soil, reducing fertiliser costs, and reduces reseeding costs.

It's a win:win:win relationship for the farmer, the bees, and us. And our farmers get a double win, as we also provide them with a selection of delicious honeys each year.
