Gagalu Honey farmers in North Malaita will now receive timely and reasonable income after they were handed new queen bees for production.
The new queen bees were handed by the Gariana Honey Bee centrefollowing successful workshops in Malaita province.
SIBC stringer for North Malaita John Andrew Kiri reports, this has been a great achievement for honey farmers in North Malaita.
Kiri adds farmers will now receive timely and reasonable income from the new queen bees.
“The rural farmers will benefit by way of receiving cash from selling their honey products. For instance, a bottle will cost $70, so in a week a person with two hives of produced honey can receive $3,500 only in two weeks.”
