Our 100% Australian crystalised honey range specialises in raw honey, crystalised raw honey and raw honeycomb. We believe the tastiest and healthiest honey is honey kept in its most natural state with minimal processing.
Our hives are mostly static to each location and therefore our honey will vary in taste, consistency and colour all year round dependent on the flora, weather conditions and season. This is the way we like our local honey to be. Some flowering seasons will crystalise faster than others, which is normal for raw unheated honey.
Created in the hive by the bees, uncapped by hand with a serrated knife, and spun by us the beekeepers we can ensure every step in the process is kept as natural as possible.
Benefits of raw honey
Honey is one of the worlds amazing products. The health benefits of raw honey are extensive. It is a good source of antioxidants that help protect your body from cell damage due to free radicals.
The tiny residue of propolis in raw honey has antifungal and antibacterial properties making it ideal for healing wounds. It is thought that incredible enzymes such as phytonutrients, amylase, glucose oxidase, invertase, diastase and catalese in honey are responsible for the immune-boosting and anticancer benefits. Minimal processing and good storage helps to retain these properties.
Honey also includes small trace amounts of 54 different micronutrients (or, vitamins and minerals):
- pantothenic acid
- vitamin C
To get the benefits from bee gut flora, please do not heat your honey over 40 degrees, as this will cause the beneficial enzymes to die. It will still be perfectly tasty for cooking or dropping in your tea. So don’t forget to have a teaspoon of raw honey straight from the spoon. It contains 64 calories and 17 grams of sugar in each tablespoon of raw honey, which is a great source of portable energy for runners.
Our happy hives are located on suburban and rural properties from Brisbane to Gympie. We use no chemicals in the management of our bees or the processing of our raw honey or pure beeswax. We are organically minded in every step of our beekeeping journey.
When you buy any of our products you are supporting a local family of beekeepers that support an important industry and other family-run businesses. Dream big for local impact!
