So ..... we is busy as bees . All our mates have been chasing the Manuka, and I think it fizzed. So we have been shagging the donkey with access to empty sites and clover going ballistic, Kamahi has done it's thing and the Rata doing very nicely , Thankyou.
The only issue we have is drums.
We ordered 120 drums off Visypak last week, were a bit slow in paying the invoice, and they sold the drums on us . So now have to wait in line while they crank up another production run , which is'nt ideal when you have 3000 litres of granulating honey sitting in the bulk tank.
Sometimes this country is very backward in coming forward.

Now here's a funny thing .....
We ordered drums from the drum factory a while ago, and they sold them on us, so I had to wait a week while they made more.
I picked them up yesterday.
So asked the nice lady in the office what the difference was ?
The thing is she said , milk powder drums and honey drums have the same liners. The only difference is that honey drums come on a pallet of four, while milk powder drums come on eights.
OMG.
Next time we'll get milk powder drums.
