Thank you for a great year

Thank you all

2019 has been an great year for us at 8 Frame Honey and we would like to thank our customers for all of your support!

While the honey flow was non existent for us, bushfires raged just over the mountain, 3 of our hives took tumbles during extreme wind conditions and the drought failed to break there were many positive in our year. Some of our highlights include:

  • relocating to a new premises
  • over-wintering all except a single colony
  • building an all new room dedicated to our courses
  • expanding our apiary
  • conducting the most courses in a single season to date
  • mentoring some wonderful new beekeepers throughout Canberra and New South Wales

Change

We have conducted our annual business snapshot and reflection. 2020 will bring a few changes to 8 Frame Honey. Some of these will be trivial (moving to one blog every 2 months) and some will be much more noticeable (refreshing our website and updating our product list).

Our most exciting change (to do with AZ hives) will be announced between the end of January and mid February. Stay tuned to our Instagram account (#8framehoney) to hear about it first!

We look forward to 2020 and wish everyone a wonderful year ahead!
