Price: R250 per group regardless of the size

The honey bees most important gift to us is not only the honey they produce but the pollination of flowers which is crucial in the production of half the planets food supply.

Ever wondered how a tiny little insect can fill a jar of honey? Well, it takes a group of 12 bees in their lifetime to produce a teaspoon of honey between them. Honey bees must visit approximately two million flowers to make one 500 gram pot of honey.  It is for this reason that the team at Overberg Honey Co. are so passionate about their work as beekeepers.
