Hello. My name is Suzanne Claessen. I would like to show you what it means to be a starting Beekeeper.
This year I became a certified Approved Beekeeper.
A whole new world has opened up for me full with curiosities, shockers, and fascinating events.
My first beehive, my first stings, my beefriends and my sudden spontaneously erupted obsession with honey. I’ve got to know the commercial beekeeping industry as well as modest small scale projects. I’ve learned how to do lots with very little. Anyone can do it, really!
As everything is still quite novel to me, you will find that get often surprised by things. I hope I can surprise you too, sometime.
I want this blog to be about the relationship between bees and humans.
I have to explain to you that I live in New Zealand, and I live by the seasons. At the moment of starting up this blog it is late summer/start of autumn, which means Honey Extraction Time! This is why I have chosen to start my blog with the bee product we all know best: Honey! With honey as a starting point, I will take you through various other bee adventures and discussions.
Please let me know if you have a request for a certain bee-topic 🙂
