About Us

Our Mission


Burnett Beekeeping Supplies is a truly Australian business, owned by David  and  Gaye Horton, BBS is a family affair. Working alongside David and Gaye is Sonya whose contribution to the success of BBS goes well beyond that of an employee.

All have a lifetime connection to rural Australia having all been raised on farms and living in rural communities. This connection has resurrected some long forgotten values and brought to the business honesty, integrity and a striving ambition for excellence.

David has experience in the timber industry through owning and operating a portable sawmill, working throughout the southeast and central Qld. David first became interested  in the bee industry approximately 8 years ago whilst working with a local beekeeper. This experience combined with David and Gaye’s passion for all things Australian motivated the pair to invest and participate in the Australian bee industry. This decision instigated the foundation of Burnett Beekeeping Supplies.

The Future

Burnett Beekeeping Supplies are optimistic about the bee industry in Australia and believe it has a bright future.  With this in mind David and Gaye have invested in a wax processing plant adding a new dimension to the services they already offer the industry.
