Apiary Sponsorship

Sponsor an apiary – 10kg – $1400 per year

Opportunities exist for local businesses or organisations to be involved in promoting the ethical and sustainable production of honey and bee related products.

This is an opportunity for local businesses to support sustainable beekeeping in the Australian Capital Territory and surrounds by sponsoring an apiary.

The money goes toward the annual maintenance of the hives and transitioning bees from plastic and polystyrene hives into custom built timber hives, using recycled rice husks (a by-product of rice production) for insulation to improve bee comfort and to stay true to the ethical and sustainable ethos of the Honeysmith.

The honey you recieve is all local bush capital honey from one of the Honeysmiths apiaries located in the Australian Capital Territory.

You can choose the apiary from those available, apiaries are located in the Australian Capital Territory and surrounds. 

All hives are managed by the Honeysmith and there is no requirement for the sponsor to be involved in the day to day management of the hive.

Sponsorship involves an annual fee, which includes:

  • Up to 10kgs of the honey share (this is dependent on honey flow)
  • A selection of beeswax wraps (6) to encourage staff to use less single use plastics.
  • Apiary signage with your company logo stating who the apiary is sponsored by and a shout out on social media.
  • An apiary tour (up to 4 people), with the opportunity to put on a bee suit and look inside a hive.
