Who’s who, in this blog.
The SA Beekeeper is a family business. In South Africa, The Beekeeper is run by Nolan Lottering who is a registered South African Bee keeper ECO84. From Eastern Cape. His father Danny Lottering also was a registered beekeeper, WC 0203 in South Africa. Originally from the south western cape of SA. Where the “FynBos Honey” is harvested. Because of the drought and loss of most vegetation and flowers for bees to forage from, Danny moved to eastern cape. As there is more summer rain and the bees should do better here in the fields of the cape.
What we cover.
Father and son catch and rescue swarms of bees and remove swarms from places that are a danger to humans. Always caring for the bees and transporting and placing them safely in fields. This enables them to build up their apiaries. Place hives on farms near shade water and food.
We also harvest honey from capped combs when available. The honey is sold to clients and family members. Only pure honey is harvested and sieved into bottles to be sold. Share Honey remedies as well as some recipes that use honey.
Danny and Heather has since moved to Vilcabamba, Loja, Ecuador, in South America, to live with family and is continuing the bee business he is very passionate about. Building some bee boxes and frames, then will teach the local Spanish people who would love to learn to keep bees. This will be his retirement hobby.
Therefore the logo and name SaBeeKeeper will be used as well, as it does represent SA. South Africa and SA South America BeeKeeping.
