Keeping ahead of all the ins and outs of beekeeping

Learning Centre Introduction

If you ask a group of beekeepers a question, you are likely to get many different answers. We aim to provide you with the building blocks you will need for your beekeeping experience. If you have ever wondered how to start beekeeping, or what beekeeping involves, our learning centre is designed to help you understand the practicalities of becoming a beekeeper, and help you out along the way.

From our new Learning Centre you can find your nearest bee club, check out where you can get a beekeeping qualification, read articles, view videos, see what’s happening in the industry and more!

Alert Level 3 Update

Our Christchurch branch will be open for collections and deliveries from 12 August. Under Alert Level 3 beekeepers do not need to register with MPI and on-commercial (hobbyist) beekeepers can continue to operate their hives. APINZ has published FAQ’s and operating protocols for commercial and non-commercial beekeepers that need to be adhered to when beekeeping under Alert Level 3.
