    Community 4/5

    Community:

  • Behind the home there is separate bungalow containing 3 rooms and a bathroom. Adjacent is a large double garage, shedding/storage and a shop area previously selling honey. This area could be a new enterprise of some sort or even conversion to B&B, Homestay or an income stream as a permanent rental
  • More unusual though is the opportunity to be a bee business. Part of this area is currently a bee farm managed by an apiarist, this could be taken over or removed. The shop previously enjoyed eco tour groups and the glass bee hive could be working again attracting students to visit - school and uni groups as well as a tourist attraction.
  • The bee hives are ready to get re-started and the ti-tree waiting for the bees to get busy.
  • The marketing is easy because the honey is in great demand through health food/ organic green grocers in Melbourne alone.
  • Bees on the Island are free from all disease and are unique in that they are truly organic hence the product is pure. The particular medicinal property of the honey produced can be likened to the best of Manuka honey coming from NZ. The apiarist did get this honey tested and the results were very favourable and he anticipated that if converted to organic certification it could command very big returns up to $75.00 kg. So a comfortable lifetyle with reasonably good returns would be possible
