My Life as a Manuka Honey Farmer
About this Event
A Winter Beekeeping Season in New Zealand
Floods, buds, nectar and trucks. Having spent three months in the thick of New Zealand’s Manuka season Jack Silberrad learned about their queen rearing methods, running 750 double-queen colonies, fauna flora, and how to survive alongside with his Kiwi hosts.

And the ultimate question you may well ask – is it worth the asking price?
