We are a small family run business, consisting of Shawn the apiarist (Bee keeper) and farmer, Anthea the book keeper and product manufacturer and our 5 children. Shawn started doing bees as a hobby in 1998 and soon realised that he wanted to do more with them and so we continued to build our hive numbers each year.

Shawn now runs approx 180 productive hives and is still building. We extract up to 20 ton of Organic honey on a good year. We avoiding using chemicals in all aspects of our farming practices. Our Aim is to produce products of a high standard and as natural as possible.

In 1884 Ligurian Bees were introduced to Kangaroo Island. Thanks to the government passing legislation to proclaim Kangaroo Island a Ligurian Bee Sanctuary in 1885, we have the only pure strain of Ligurian Bees left in the world.

We have Organic Certification through (NASAA) National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia and we extract around 20 tons of honey a year under their stringent guidelines.

All of our honey sites are pre approved by NASAA, keeping a 5km radius away (remembering bees only travel 2km) from any agricultural or suburban areas which may have dangerous substances or crops.

Strict extraction guidelines are adhered to and stringent records are kept of hive locations, extraction, storage and sales so all honey produced can be traced through each step of production.
