International Women's Day 2021

Today, we honour beekeeper Gretchen Wheen.

Gretchen had a sharp mind and generous spirit, along with a passion for bees and beekeeping.


She was one of Australia's best known beekeepers. Gretchen was one of the first suppliers of quality queen bees to Australian and international commercial beekeepers. She was a pioneer in instrumental insemination of queen bees, and passionate about the importance of stock improvement.


Gretchen dedicated much of her estate to the establishment of the Wheen Bee Foundation.
