Please note: Our beekeeping courses recommence in October 2021. Dates for the season commencing October 2021 will be released in August.


8 Frame Honey is a family run beekeeping business. Our focus is education, bees, AZ hives and honey (when the bees have a good season).

We run educational workshops teaching people how to keep bees at home. Our workshops run from October until March. Courses are held at our apiary in Bywong, NSW. We offer hive consultations where we come and inspect your bees (with or without your help). We also tailor design workshops which we deliver to schools and community groups as required. We sell bees (in the form of nucs – short for nucleus) to fill your hive with bees. We also hand craft AZ hives that our head apiarist has designed himself.

Owner and apiarist, Ben, is a beekeeper, has had several beekeeping articles published in the Australasian Beekeeping Magazine and has visited several countries to learn how beekeeping differs across continents and hemispheres. Ben believes in lifelong learning, working with nature instead of against it to better our lives and loves sharing his knowledge with others who are keen to listen.

Please note: We will be updating our website between now and the end of July. During this time we will be adding small improvements to the site and adding new patterns for our lavender products.
