We are an organically based beekeeping and honey processing company adhering to Rudolf Steiner principles of natural living. Processing our own product allows us to supply an unheated product, ensuring an undamaged enzyme count with botanicals and a complex flavour to the pallet.

The volunteer work will involve a variety of cleaning up hive gear, helping to jar and process honey, labelling, making beeswax candles, propolis creams, preparing the bee gear, building and (in the right season) visiting the hives.

Our work exchange is 24 hours a week for full board and 3 healthy meals a day. We have a vegetable garden that you can harvest from for meals.

Very relaxed and easy going environment/people, great food and good company. Only a short bus or car ride into town, not too far to bike but probably a little too far to walk. We have 4 bicycles available to use. Around the Hawkes Bay are 168 kilometers of bike trails, many right along the beautiful coastline.

We prefer couples, because we have 3 double beds in our upstairs area, just for volunteers.

There is smoking inside the main area (not the bedroom) and we enjoy a beer or honey vodka with a game of darts some nights. :)

Napier is a beautiful town with historic art deco buildings, over 50 worldclass murals, $10 hotsprings on the waterfront, native bush walks, nearby waterfalls, great cafes, farmers markets (where we sell our honey,) and amazing vineyards.
