Backyard Bees - rural and residential beehive rental
We operate Backyard Bees - a bee hive rental business, for those who love bees as much as we do, but don't have the time or confidence to keep bees, themselves. We offer a fully managed system, where we complete all hive checks and take care of all the registration and levy costs, the customer receives 10kg of locally harvested and processed honey and gains the benefit of bee pollination for their fruiting and garden plants.
