Enriching Lives

01.08.2012 / Nicky Bee Bee Farm

Windhoek’s very own ‘bee charmer’, Nicklaas Eksteen, is well-known in Windhoek as the remover of unwanted bee hives. As a child he learnt these skills from his grandfather who also taught him about respecting the bees he works with, and his dream has always been to have his own bee farm and to sell honey with his own brand name. The Tou Trust has helped Nicklaas realize this dream by donating the ‘start-up’ infrastructure necessary to set up the bee farm, which amongst other things includes several new bee hives. The donation was a total of NAD 22 000 (USD 3 000) and this should be enough to allow him to have a viable population of bees that can produce a regular supply of honey for sale. We are eagerly awaiting the first harvest.
