WELCOME TO QUERCUS
Quercus Health is our family business that we started in beautiful Ermelo, City of oaks, where we live.
Many streets in Ermelo are lined with oak trees, hence the name Quercus, which is Latin for oak tree.
Our beehives rotate between the Highveld and Lowveld, depending on the season when specific plants flower for the bees to work on.
In summer the bees work on Eucalyptus trees and kidney beans on the Highveld. Autumn the bees are moved to the forestry areas of Mkondo from where it is moved to tree crops in the Lowveld when these start to flower in late winter and spring.
We are blessed to receive mentoring from a very helpful bee farmer of 27 years who shares his wisdom and experience with us freely.
Honey is our creed and raw, non-irradiated, pure and organic is how we flow. With 125 beehives, all in Mpumalanga, our carbon footprint is small, but our impact is big.
