Gardener's Glory - apiary and honey

Newlands, Cape Town, Western Cape

It’s somewhat ironic that a man with a fear of bees would end up as a beekeeper. But Richard's story is exactly that. He describes his awakening to the world of beekeeping while watching the opening scene in a 1980s film adaptation of Robin Hood - Maid Marion tending to her hives. “It’s difficult to explain. But there’s something about it. Bees just represent something peaceful - living with nature.”

Image for 'Tierhoek Sustainable Wine Farm'

Tierhoek Sustainable Wine Farm

Cederberg, Western Cape

While the Tierhoek wine farm isn’t certified as organic it is managed in an organic way with (at present for the last 6 years at least) zero use of non-organic pest control. The remote site, situated 760m up in the mountains, is influenced by cool Atlantic sea air from the west coast along with dry heat from the mountains. Because the farm is so remote and quite high up in the Cederberg it is less vulnerable to migrating pests from neighbouring farms.
