Fyn Bee-haviour

Meet the world's most important pollinator of food crops. The Bee. Of course other insects, birds and bats help too, but bee's are the busiest of the bunch by pollinating an estimated one third of the food that we consume each day. That means one in every three bites of food depends on bees for pollination


Over the last few years, bee's have been experiencing threats, including diminishing forage resources, pests and diseases, as well as problems arising from misuse of pesticides and insecticides in the environment.




In 2018 it hit a bit closer to home where our very own Cape Honey Bee's began dying in their thousands along the Cape peninsula.


During this time, in the heart of the Western Cape, surrounded by fynbos and proteas, a small sanctuary was created as a safe haven for the Bee's to create their hives in a natural way, secluded from the threats that were endangering them while providing a rich food source of fynbos spanning acres for the the Bee's to forage.


This contribution towards the conservation of the Cape Honey bee (Apis mellifera capensis), helped lessen the sting and the bee's began to thrive on the farm.


Year on year they continue to produce a sweet, distinctive honey product, that is unique in taste due to the surrounding indigenous proteas and suikerbos
