    • Blackberry Honey

      Brought to Tasmania by early European settlers, the blackberry bush (Rubus fruticosus) was prized for its sweet and juicy fruit and was once widespread throughout Tasmania.

      These days, large stands of wild blackberries are very hard to find, and we are one of a few beekeeping families still producing wild Blackberry honey.

      Genuine Blackberry honey is highly sought after for its light, very delicate flavour and aroma.

      Available Sizes: 125g, 250g, 500g, 1kg, 3kg, 14kg, 28kg

    • Leatherwood

      Often referred to as the King of Honey and the Honey of Kings, Leatherwood honey’s bold, complex and unique flavour can best be described as “tasting like the rainforest”. This is because the wild rainforests of Tasmania are the only place in the world where the rare Leatherwood tree (Eucryphia lucida) grows.

      Since 1955, our family has had the privilege of sourcing this highly sought after honey from the heart of the Tarkine wilderness, an area known for its ancient forests and the world’s cleanest air and water.

      Available Sizes: 125g, 250g, 500g, 1kg, 3kg, 14kg, 28kg

    • Manuka Leatherwood Blend

      Both of our ‘bests’ come together in a perfect marriage. This natural Manuka Leatherwood Blend brings these prized honeys together creating a full-bodied flavour that is both earthy and spicy.

      MANUKA: The Manuka bush Leptospermum scoparium is found in remote parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. Manuka honey has long been reputed for its antibacterial properties. Indeed, in 2006, the naturally occurring compound, Methylglyoxal, was identified as the dominant antibacterial constituent of Manuka honey. Our family takes great care to ensure the purity of our Manuka honey.

    • Meadow Honey

      The fertile farmlands and meadows on the edge of the Tarkine wilderness are often referred to as “the food bowl of Australia”; farmers there have a reputation for skilfully caring for the land.

      Our bees produce this beautiful honey from the clover and other flowers growing in these farmers’ meadows, as well as from the wildflowers that grow alongside these fields and nearby small streams.

      The mild flavours of meadow honey are widely popular.

      Available Sizes: 125g, 250g, 500g, 1kg, 3kg, 14kg, 28kg

    • Tarkine Wilderness Honey

      Taste the wild. Our Tarkine Wilderness Honey is renown for its unique flavour and superb quality. This owes much to the placement of our beehives deep in the Tarkine rainforests. We do this for extended periods, allowing our bees to collect nectar from the blossoms of a diverse range of native rainforest plants in one of the most natural, undisturbed wilderness settings on the planet.

      This means the flavour and aroma of this wilderness honey can vary naturally – deliciously – from batch to batch, season to season; it provides lovers of high quality honey with a truly unique taste. Or ‘gastronomic experience’ if you prefer.

      Our process of cold extraction ensures that our Wilderness Honey retains all of the flavours and aromas of the wilderness; it’s pure, wild honey. 100% natural of course.

      Available Sizes: 250g, 500g, 1kg

    • Tasmanian Manuka Honey

      The manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium) is found in remote parts of Tasmania and New Zealand. Indeed, “Evidence suggests that L. scoparium originated in Australia before the onset of the Miocene aridity, and dispersed relatively recently from eastern Australia to New Zealand.”

      While processed honey, including that derived from the Manuka bush, has been produced in Tasmania since European bees were introduced here in the early 1830s, there is also documented evidence back to 1884 for the term ‘Manuka’ being produced in Tasmania.

      Manuka honey has long been reputed for its antibacterial properties. Indeed, in 2006, the naturally occurring compound, Methylglyoxal, was identified as the dominant antibacterial constituent of Manuka honey. Our family takes great care to ensure the purity of our Manuka honey, and its Methylglyoxal content has been measured and labelled on this jar.

      Enjoyed for its eating quality as well as its other benefits, Manuka honey has a strong, earthy flavour.
