Hive hosting and honey harvest - SOLD OUT

Hive hosting and honey harvest - SOLD OUT


SO SORRY!  WE HAVE NO MORE CAPACITY FOR INDIVIDUAL HOSTING THIS YEAR.  We do have hives for hire in our apiaries and we welcome corporate sponsorship, so if you are keen to help with those please email  Otherwise, please go to the Beeple Page under the Join Us tab and register your interest as a hive host and we will get in touch with a plan for next year! xx

Hirer receives full servicing of hive plus 10kg of honey. The next 1kg honey is donated to breakfast clubs in low decile schools and the rest sold with profits supporting local community food projects.

We can currently place hives in the Hutt Valley and Wellington areas only. You can either have your hive at your place or if you prefer it can be kept at a community apiary.

We also offer a six month payment plan (of $82 per month) if you'd prefer not to pay for your hive in one hit.  Get in touch if you want to discuss any hosting or payment options by emailing
