I have been reliably informed (i.e. on Facebook) by my neighbour Craig that it isn't called a 'bee farm'. During my visit to Strahan last week I got to visit the property of a fellow Tasmanian Leaders program participant. It was just a short drive out of town on the beautiful Henty River. He showed us inside one of the smaller hives so we could see the queen bee and the worker bees toiling away. We stuck a finger in and ate warm honey fresh from the frame. Yum.


  1. Hallo Susan, sehr schön.
    Das heißt auf Deutsch: Imkerei!
    Herzliche Grüße aus dem winterlichen Flandern,

  2. My son and I were on the west coast a couple of weeks ago and we ended up having a game of "who could spot the bee hives first" as we were driving along. There were so many and some of them so close to the road too. I think my son had an unfair advantage as I was driving but it was really lovely over there.


  3. Hi Jan, yes there are some really enormous tall hives along the road aren't there! We were only allowed to go near the very small ones, presumably they are less angry :-) I didn't get a chance to stop much on the drive there and back but it was spectacular - must go back. I'll post a few pics from that drive later in the week.
