From 7:25 for 7:30 start

Australian Bee Farming and an insight into extracting honey for hobby and commercial beekeepers.

Matthew is a young commercial beekeeper based in South Staffordshire managing over 140 hives. Still in his 20’s Matthew got his first hive at 21 and has grown his Holt Hall Apiary into a successful business.  After spending time in Australia working on a 1,800 hive bee farm in New South Wales he has incorporated many of the successful practices he experienced in Australia into his own beekeeping ventures

  • differences between Australian and British beekeeping as well as some of the practices I learnt and will be using with my own bees.
  • progression from a hobby beekeeper to a commercial setup and what equipment I have learned to be invaluable along the way. As well as mistakes I’ve made (Because we all make them) so that hopefully you can learn from them
  • tips on honey extracting - love it or hate it it’s part of beekeeping
  • food hygiene and best practices are also an important part of extracting and so I will touch on these from my own experience of dealing with both Environmental Health and Trading
