JAATE Honey - Country Calendar

The Giesens run a sheep-and-beef farm in Hunterville, Rangitikei, and are big believers in self-sufficiency. Giesen built a garden to grow their own produce but something crucial was missing.

“We needed pollination for my garden,” says Giesen.

“There were no bees around so I just thought, ‘Right, I’m going to do it myself’. Got a couple of hives and it’s just evolved and now we’ve got 150 hives and it’s become part of our business.”

I always like to play "how will they insert beekeeping into this episode?" when I watch CC. There's usually good odds.
