Beekeeping

Beekeeping is a rapidly growing industry in New Zealand. It’s a dynamic landscape with rural, lifestyle and cosmopolitan located hive numbers growing in both the commercial and hobbyist sectors. Farmlands supports this growth with our 82 branch network and 33 beekeeping specialist stores.

With an increasing number of hives comes an increased demand for products, services, specialist advice and payment options to cater to the sector’s specific needs. As a result, there is now more local / regional based servicing available to ensure adequate stewardship of bee health and that sustainability is maintained.
