For instance, none of our hives are fed with sugar. We leave honey in the hive for the bees to feed on over the winter.

Each batch of honey is documented and traced from the hive to your table. The Manuka hives are accessed by 4WD trucks or occasionally helicoptered in and out due to the rugged bushy terrain. Our beekeepers share not just their prided honey, but also an intimate passion for the breath-taking scenery they live on.

Honey, I love you: our 40,000-year relationship with the humble bee
It happens on almost every film. There are many books and documentaries that I did pull from, such as work by journalists Peter Maas and Tom Gjelten. It's a combination of many people's stories. But that particular book I've never seen. In July the case was transferred to the District Court with jurisdiction over Central California.
Braddock appealed the decision, filing a motion with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on 11 March  on the basis that his work was translated incorrectly. Film writers expressed mixed feelings after viewing a trailer for the film. Writing in The Washington Post , the columnist Richard Cohen praised the film, seeing it as an indictment of the hesitant American reaction to the atrocities committed by Serbs against Bosniaks in Bosnia as well as an endorsement of American-led foreign interventionism such as the military action in Libya.
It's completely senseless, badly directed, badly written, and deserves absolutely no attention at all, but for the fact it's got the name of a global film star attached to it. And having worked in Hollywood and interacted with some if its movie stars, I think I know how this film got made. Being a big star does not always work to your advantage. These people live their sheltered and insular Beverly Hills lives and have very little clue about what's going on 15 miles away in The Valley , let alone half a world away in Bosnia.
This film is a very strange attempt at tackling something you're absolutely clueless about; it would be like me writing a story about American suburbia using news reports as the basis. It seems like nobody had enough courage to tell Angelina that during the making of the film".

In the Serbian media, the film received more negative reviews, arguing that the film ignored Serbian war victims and unfairly presented Serbs as evildoers. The film has received generally mixed reviews. Though feeling In the Land of Blood and Honey "has you dreading to learn what atrocity awaits around the next corner", The Hollywood Reporter ' s Todd McCarthy also thinks Jolie "deserves significant credit for creating a powerfully oppressive atmosphere and staging the ghastly events so credibly. Variety 's Justin Chang penned a negative review of the movie, labeling it a "dramatically misguided attempt to renew public awareness of the —95 Balkan conflict" that "springs less from artistic conviction than from an over-earnest humanitarian impulse.
Manohla Dargis of The New York Times has some issues with the way certain characters' dialogues are used as "short history lesson on the region that's clearly meant for the benefit of those watching the movie", but for the most part feels the movie "moves briskly and easily holds your attention, largely through a perverse love story that doesn't suffer for being such an obvious metaphor for the larger battle raging beyond Ajla and Danijel's relationship. Jake Coyle of Associated Press wrote a negative review in which he gives Jolie some credit for "using her celebrity to bring attention to the dangers of pacifism in the face of war crimes and ethnic cleansing", but criticizes her for "a heavy-handed touch" as well as for "putting politics ahead of story and character, thus blatantly imposing a message, which results in a movie whose narrative feels like a fictionalized United Nations presentation.
Joe Neumaier of the New York Daily News sees the biggest accomplishment of In the Land of Blood and Honey to be "the way it never loses sight of the closeness of the combatants, turning national intimacy into a tragic casualty. According to Los Angeles Times resident critic Kenneth Turan Jolie accomplished something that "is both impressive and unexpected. The Village Voice ' s Karina Longworth 's review is particularly negative. She dismisses the movie as "a United Nations extra-credit project about the Bosnian War" and criticizes Jolie for "producing a sanctimonious vanity commercial for her own good intentions.
Nathan Rabin of The A.
Club refers to In the Land of Blood and Honey as "a film of shuddering earnestness and fevered good intentions gone awry, a dreary slog of a message movie with little but noble if unfulfilled aspirations to commend it. He furthermore has issues with her script "that often misses the boat" and its "over- and under-drawn characters. Beekman regarded the plot as rambling, and replete with implausible developments.
Most objectionable was the unnatural dialogue, which rubs in the meaning of war dilemmas some more, as if they were not already made obvious in scenes of gruesome cruelty. Typifying is the scene where Ajla, the Bosnian Muslim, hides behind a corpse during a solitary escape through the forest. The scene is completely gratuitous, but it supplies Jolie with a compelling visual image.

Bu Saif Apiaries is based on a sprawling farm in Al Shahaniya, and includes more than 15 other smaller operations around Qatar. As a child, Al Suwaidi would harvest some g of honey per season from hives in his backyard, much to the chagrin of his worried father. Al Suwaidi has since developed his love of bees into a business, churning out almost 8 tons 8, kg of homegrown sidr honey last year.
I was about 10 or 12, and we had a dwarf beehive in our garden. I tried to touch it and a bee stung my lip. In the following years, Al Suwaidi deepened his understanding of bee-rearing by taking courses on beekeeping in Europe, studying online and testing out methods himself. The weather is great, there are lots of plants and flowers, and the bees produce a lot of honey.
Today, Bu Saif apiaries is part of a larger effort by the Qatar government to beef up food security by for example supporting farmers, commercial beekeepers and other measures. Al Suwaidi, whose full-time job as the manager of the Al Wakrah Souq takes up most of his days, also works as a contractor and trainer for the Ministry of Environment.
In Qatar, the apian season lasts some seven months, with bees producing up to four types of honey — sidr, samar, lemon, and spring — which are named after the trees from which they are manufactured. Each variety differs in taste, color, smell and mineral and salt composition, and sidr continues to be the most popular type requested. They arrive by air in boxes of between 20, to 60, bees, and are gradually transported to the main Al Shahaniya farm before being transplanted from their traveling boxes into their wooden hives.

Extra care is taken to ensure that the bees do not die of sudden temperature changes as they make their way from the air-conditioned aircraft to the farms, Al Suwaidi said. This year, some 1, boxes were imported to keep up with a growing local demand for honey — a long way from the 50 boxes of bees the entrepreneur first brought in 10 years ago.
Open bottles of cool water, replenished daily, are then placed inside the hives, to ensure that the bees stay adequately hydrated.
