Marlborough's landscapes are dominated by self-pollinating grapes, but there are still many plants which require honey bees to carry out pollination and ensure a bountiful fruit, vegetable or seed crop. Cherries make up the bulk of commercial spring pollination requirements in Marlborough, with seed crops later in the season.
Pyramid Apiaries has hives for hire that are best suited to providing a successful pollination: high bee numbers, young queens that are laying well and with the appropriate mix of honey and pollen stores. These hives, combined with Patrick & Lauras' knowledge of the local environment and experience working in pollination, give you the best chance of a successful pollination.
Rates for pollination differ depending on your requirements. Please contact Patrick or Laura to discuss your needs.
