NZ Bees Beehives

Our Beehives

Currently, our bee-keeping team manages over 1,800 beehives over New Zealand’s North Island, each hive is home to up to 60,000 bees. The job isn’t easy – one beehive needs at least four acres of flowering plants to feed on, so all the company’s hives are carefully spaced across hundreds of thousands of acres of rugged New Zealand countryside. Some are in locations so remote there is no road access and the only way beekeepers can reach them is to get out of their 4×4 trucks and hike. The team are constantly on the move from one site to the next, with each pair of beekeepers checking multiple sites each day.
