Raevan Bees Ltd - Raelene A'Court

We are a family owned and operated business living in Sheffield, Canterbury (NZ) who pride ourselves on our services.


We started with only 2 small nucs which are 5 frame bees hives. It wasn't long before they got bigger and our two boys put them into two 10 frame bee hives.

We decided as a family to continue to breed bees and enjoyed our local bee club here in Christchurch Canterbury. It became a passion and a hobby but then in a few short months 10 more hives arrived and we became semi commercial.


We’ve been Bee Keeping in Canterbury since 2016 and our hives are thought the Central Canterbury Region.
