Now available is our Native Bee honey - one of the rarest honeys in the world, and it comes from a tiny, stingless bee - the Tetragonula.
Fact: 1 hive only produces 1 kg of this wonderful honey per year - so this is a very special honey.

Australian Native Bee honey contains a rare and naturally occurring sugar profile that is different from other honey's. It's called 'trehalulose' and it has a substantially lower Glycemic Index (GI) than regular honey and is absorbed more slowly into the bloodstream. The lower GI means diabetics don't experience the spike in blood sugar caused by glucose and fructose.

How does Native Bee honey obtain these benefits? Well, it’s probably because native bees make a lot of propolis, or 'bee glue', and it is valuable levels of healing and antibacterial properties that is comparable to Manuka Honey.
Sugarbag honey, as it is sometimes called, has been shown to have substantial germ-killing properties and medicinal properties. Not only this, but it tastes great as well.
Here we are with Steve, our Native Bee Keeper, and a standard native bee hive.
Steve absolutely loves his bees and is very conscious about protecting them and keeping them happy and contented - the bees are kept safe and well during the honey extraction process.
There are about 10,000 flying bees in this hive plus the lava, eggs and pupae.
