Apiculture (Bee) Specialist

​ Tony’s journey with AgriSea started in April 2017 when he was appointed as Area Field Consultant in the Bay of Plenty and South Waikato regions which he thoroughly enjoyed. His passion for beekeeping saw him concentrating on all things Apiculture during 2020. He was recently given the opportunity to expand on his career with AgriSea and venture back into both the Agriculture and Horticultural sectors whilst still maintaining his Apiculture portfolio.

This new role is a big challenge, but Tony is excited as a challenge is what drives him along with his love of the land.

Camping, fishing and kayaking are pastimes he enjoys when time allows as well as some woodwork.
