Continuing on

the traditional

practice of honey


In the early 1980’s with the company and support of his wife Angela, Geoff purchased Ashburton Apiaries and turned his knowledge and expertise into a fully sustainable and quality beekeeping business.

For the early years it was just Geoff, Angela and their bees. Over time he has grown the business and his team and throughout the season he hosts numerous temporary staff.

Geoff’s son Greg who like Geoff possesses a deep passion for beekeeping and has been a part of the business since 2015, Greg helps to manage the day to day operations of the business.
