TVMA is inspired by our ancestors, people who were self-sufficient and successfully practiced sustainable livestock and crop farming in what has become the Northern Cape, North West and Limpopo provinces. As in all African cultures, we learnt about this heritage through our oral histories, how our families once lived off the land as healthy communities of shared purpose.
For many centuries African cultures have worked with bees but the idea of introducing modern, commercial beekeeping came from our grandfather Dr Sam Motsuenyane, who is an avid farmer and passionate about rural development. Invited us to join him for a course in beekeeping following a couple of years where bees would settle in the family home ceiling, produce too much honey a that the ceiling would collapse.
Since then our mission has been to address the global plight of bees, restore damaged ecosystems, and sustainably alleviate rural poverty in one. Our story is still unfolding from bees ,to honey, fresh produce, skin care and all treasures found in our villages.
As part of creating an ideal environment for bees to thrive, TVMA embarks on a drive to encourage planting of crops/forage that meets the nutritional requirements of bees therefore creating a mutually beneficial relationship. Where bees have food and our customers can enjoy natural, sustainably grown and locally produced products.
