Our vision is to be the preferred supplier of high quality honey and associated hive products.
Because of honey’s anti-inflammatory properties, it is able to help reduce allergy symptoms.
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.
Protecting our bee-population
Bee numbers are declining not just in South Africa, but worldwide. Without bees about a third of the crops that are planted for human food will produce much less or none at all. Protecting our bee-population is the responsibility of every person, not just the bee farmer.
Do not kill the swarm of bees that made their nest in an undesirable spot of your house or other building. Call us to remove the swarm in a responsible and ethical way to ensure that the maximum number of bee swarms stay alive and functional.
The cost will depend on the extent of the work that needs to be done and the travelling distance.
