Exchange Wax for Foundation

We offer the beekeeper value for money if they would like to bring into us or send to us their solid wax.

We offer 1 pound of foundation in exchange for every 1.5 pounds received or as specified by the beekeeper.

There are two methods we use in doing this:

  1. We can do a straight swap
  2. We will pay €2.00 per Lb

Phone the office on 0402 24878 or email [email protected] for more details or to arrange a swap.

These rates apply if the wax received is of GOOD quality

When no cash is changing hands (STRAIGHT SWAP) the tables below apply
