WORLD BEE DAY
We celebrated WORLD BEE DAY this weekend! The event aims to raise awareness of the importance of bees and other pollinators, in food security, biodiversity and ecosystems. Honey bees are among the most numerous and efficient pollinator species in the world. Considering that the average honey bee can visit more than 2,000 flowers in one day, these bees greatly increase the chances of a plant producing a fruit or vegetable.
Pollinators help plants survive, and plants:
Produce ⅓ of our food supply by giving us countless fruits, vegetables, and nuts
Provide ½ of the world’s oils, fibers (such as the cotton used to make clothes), and other raw materials
Are used to create many medicines
Provide food and cover for wildlife
Keep waterways clean
Prevent soil erosion
Produce the oxygen we breathe
Absorb CO2, counteracting global climate change
FROM THE BEEKEEPER
The Honey flow season is here!! Our bees have started to go out to collect the nectar of the flowers to create their honey. The honey flow season is a period for the beekeeper to be observant of the space that the bees have in the hive. If the space is reduced by the amount of honey the bees produce per day, then the beekeeper should expand the hive by adding more boxes, thus offering the bees more space for extra honey, while reducing the chances of swarming. As the days warm up, it is also important to have a good supply of water for the bees to keep hydrated! Done well, the honey flow season can be a good and enjoyable period for both the bees ad the beekeepers!!
We have a new product added to our list of delicious Honey! the very unique “GOLDFIELDS” honey. Ask our friendly staff if you want to taste it.
This honey comes all the way from Laverton, hence its name. It is amber in colour, has a cream and smooth taste with a hint of woodlands.

This time of the year we are harvesting the Red Gum and Jarrah Red Gum Honey. Red Gum honey is considered a rare, luxury product. It's produced by bees visiting the delicate, creamy white flowers of the Eucalyptus Camaldulenisistree (also known as the River Red Gum Tree) that is native to many parts of Australia. Both the Red Gum and the Jarrah Redgum are very active healing honeys
