We Need You

WE NEED BEEKEEPERS

While the beekeeping industry is a relatively small one, it plays a crucial role within the agricultural sector of NSW, and all across Australia. Bees are essential not just for the production of honey and other hive products, but also for pollination of the food crops that feed us and our livestock.

Globally, one mouthful in three depends on honey bees! Commercial production of many foods like almonds and other tree nuts, berries, fruits, vegetables and their seeds, are dependent on honey bees for pollination.

In Australia, two thirds of our Nation’s agricultural output benefits from the pollination services of honey bees!

Our Association plays a crucial role in ensuring that we have a viable and sustainable beekeeping industry in NSW.

NSW IS AUSTRALIA’S BIGGEST BEEKEEPING STATE

It is estimated that the NSW beekeeping industry contribute around $36 million annually to the state’s economy through the production of honey, bees wax and other hive products. While the pollination services provided by honey bees are estimated at $4-6 billion nationally.

There are currently around 2,799 registered beekeepers in NSW, which represents about 45 per cent of the Australian beekeeping industry.

The NSW Apiarists’ Association and its members are committed to ensuring the future of beekeeping in Australia.
