Murray Rixon - Beekeeper with a passion for bees

Murray Rixon - Beekeeper with a passion for bees

A native of Mosgiel, Murray trained at the Dunedin Botanic Gardens before moving to the UK in 1991. After a few years at the Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens he settled in South West Scotland. His practical nature and can-do attitude saw him taking on a range of design and construction challenges. One wife and two children later, he decided that the weather sucked, as did the midges, and it was time to return home!

On returning to New Zealand, he decided to pursue his dream of beekeeping, capturing his first swarm soon after. He then went on to become an AsureQuality (previously MAF) Approved Beekeeper with a NZ DECA (Disease Elimination Conformity Agreement). Now with a collection of beehives this hobby has grown into a business and he is now looking forward to sharing his enthusiasm and knowledge with others.
