Installing the first two beehives this month: they are here!
Two first beehives arrived at the vineyards today. We expect to have over one hundred at some point but the two first beehives are very important as a trial for everybody. We’re all learning, thanks to the expertise of Pak Matel, a beekeeper and colonies specialist. Pak Matel has gathered the colonies for Ratu Lestari Alami and provides training to our farmer’s group.
The beehives are hung, to avoid ants taking over them, but will be on a pedestal or foot, afterwards.
According to Pak Matel, they seem happy and he’s seeing them come back with pollen they have found nearby. I can’t see anything, but I trust the expert eyes of Pak Matel!
