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 foundation in exchange for every pound received or as specified by the beekeeper.

There are three methods we use in doing this:

  1. We can do a straight swap
  2. You can pay for wiring & conversation
  3. We will pay €3.00 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
