Beekeeping Equipment 2018
We source our wood-ware (supers, frames, lids, bottoms) from a family business in Kingaroy. All wood used is Hoop pine, sourced from plantations near Yarraman. All wood-ware is A grade timber.
The smoker we sell is made in Australia from heavy gauge stainless steel. Tools and other equipment we mostly import from the USA. Sadly, few tools (if any) are still made in Australia. The lemongrass oil we sell we buy from a Non-government Organisation in Cambodia. The equipment we sell is the equipment we use.
Please note that prices quoted are for pick-up from our Bee House.
