Russell and Janine Zabel have been clients of mine for the past 15 years. During that time I have seen them grow their bee and honey business from a passionate hobby into an equally passionate business. It has brought me great pleasure to be witness to their success. Russell and Janine are committed to delivering quality products and advice to their customers. Their work ethic, integrity and obliging sense to serve is fundamental to the type of people they are.


This is the main enterprise in our company. We are proud of what we have achieved over the past 30 years of keeping stingless bees and offer an exceptional service to our customers.

Our bees are housed in great looking timber boxes. The timber is cypress pine. It is a renewable resource and is responsibly harvested and milled in Western Queensland.

Russell is a carpenter and was a TAFE building teacher for nearly 30 years. He supervises the construction of all of their boxes and knows that each component is accurate and well made.

Please check out the new on-line shop for buying colonies, boxes and associated items.
