About Us

Daykel Apiaries was established in 1984 by David Yanke and Rachel Kearney. David, with his passion for bee breeding, has spent the past 35 years striving to improve the commercial bee stocks of New Zealand. We proudly produce and sell quality Production and Breeder Queens 

Our business is based in Paranui, in the Far North. We get the best of the Far North’s long bee season, a variety of good nectar sources, and almost year round, quality pollen sources. It is an almost perfect place to do what we do.
