Raw Organic Honey
Collection of honey takes place from the Island's flowering eucalypts, a myriad of other Australian trees and shrubs, wildflowers and other introduced flora. The amount and varieties of honey produced can be affected by seasonal conditions.
The variety of nectar collected by the bee also controls the outcome of colour and flavour, with some honeys very dark with bold flavours whilst others are light and more delicate.
Organic honey is extracted at a low temperature to retain its natural colours and flavours and to protect its many nutritional qualities. For this reason it may become naturally candied but is guaranteed to be free of all contaminants.
Natural honeycomb is produced on specially prepared frames and cut and packed to provide the freshest and purest honey available. A very popular product with our tourist.
Propolis is a natural antibiotic/antibacterial collected by the bees from leaves.
Did you know that bees are truly amazing creatures. They have four wings that they stroke at 11,500 times per minute in flight. Bees have five eyes. A hive of bees needs to fly approximately 90,000kms to produce half a kilogram of honey. 30grams of honey would be sufficient fuel for a bee to circumnavigate the earth.
