January update

Happy New Year to all the Beeps! I hope you all enjoyed a break with friends or family, ate too much food, watched too much TV and had an afternoon nap everyday! We took a small break, with only a couple of private bookings and some beekeeping to attend, and did just that :-)We have spent the last week or so moving bees from various sites to productive Marri/Red Gum sites. We are hoping to have a good harvest this season (rather lack lustre last year) and bring in some high TA tested Marri too. The ChemCentre is working hard at rolling out dedicated testing protocols to showcase how amazing our Western Australian Eucalyptus honeys are - high in both antimicrobial...
