How it all started
Bill Savage has been fascinated by bees since he got his first beehive, aged 12. Forty years later, Bill now has over 5000 hives across 110 sites in the East Cape region of New Zealand.
Bill is passionate about people and the East Coast. By employing only local beekeepers under a profit share arrangement, he ensures every jar of WildCape is helping support the local community. The long-term relationships and profit share agreements he has with landowners of the Manuka forest is another example of WildCape giving back to the region Bill loves.
