Beekeeping Is Encouraged

Korea has a wide variety of plants, which differ in blooming periods according to regions and even valleys, so the country provides favourable conditions for beekeeping.

There are many beekeeping stations in the country, and among them is the Uiam Natural Products Technology Company with a beekeeping history of nearly ten years.

It started to breed bees with only a few hives, which increased to over 200 at present.

Not a few people think that beekeeping is exciting, because it brings many products. Contrary to their opinions, keeping bees is not as charming as honey tastes sweet.

According to the beekeepers of the company, they have to tend bees with care all the year round, and what is the most important is to protect bees from damages caused by ticks and other harmful insects and diseases.

Beekeeping is mainly conducted in the form of migrant keeping from May to early October every year, so keepers have to travel a long distance of over 2 000 kilometres moving beehives.

It is far from being romantic to live separated from families for nearly half a year.

Jang Sung Sik, a leading beekeeper of the company, practised beekeeping under the guidance of his father.

According to Jang, his father started beekeeping in his 30s, harvested honey in large amounts every year and trained scores of beekeepers. Though, the father’s career hardly attracted him to the job at the beginning.

However, in the course of occasionally helping his father in keeping bees, Jang became aware that beekeeping is not merely related to honey production but gives beneficial effects on growing plants including crops and enriching the people’s life. So he undertook beekeeping.

Since then he delved into the worldwide beekeeping methods and introduced new ones based on his own experience. Now he is a “walking dictionary” in beekeeping.

This year the company increased the number of bees by hundreds of thousands and produced a lot of honey and other bee products. The credit goes to not only strenuous efforts of the beekeepers but also Jang’s extensive professional experience.

Many people visit the company to learn from its beekeeping experience.
