Just seeing if there are any beekeepers out there from the Southern Highlands NSW. Happy to chat and catch up on what is happeing for other beekeepers in the area.
I note your quest for fellow bee keepers in the SH was uneventful so far… I have a couple of hives in the SH a top bar and a Langstroth and I have a Flow hive in Sydney. The hive in Sydney is a new swarm this spring and is producing lots of honey. The lang hive in the SH is into its third summer but I have only just harvested some homey from them… I’m near bundanoon and it seems its a tougher environment for nectar etc down there. What have you found have bees in SH?
Thanks for getting in touch
It has been a slow season this year fro honey but yes you are right, the Southern Highlands is a bit tougher than Sydney for honey flow.
I actually do beekeeping training here in the highlands along with checking hives for people.
Always happy to answer any questions you have on beekeeping here or just beekeeping in general.
