Embu man tastes sweet success from beekeeping

He says bee keeping is lucrative yet it is overlooked by many farmers in Embu who are preoccupied with tea and dairy farming.

“Bee keeping is my main source of income. Through value addition, I now make various products such as candles, bar soaps and milking salve from honeycombs. I make adequate income from bee keeping to feed my family and educate my children,” Njeru says.
