Honey production falls due to drought

12:47 pm on 25 January 2010

A Northland beekeeper says the dry conditions have resulted in a big drop in honey production in the region.

Beekeepers Association Northland secretary Simon Peacy says there is very little nectar. Clover dried up in December - normally until it lasts until February.

He says the hives have a lot less honey than in other years.
