WELLINGTON APIARY

Wellington Apiary honey currently produces various honey and honeycomb varieties in Tasmania. Tasmania is one of the few places left of earth where chemical treatment of hives is not necessary. Wellington Apiary honey is from hives that are not treated with any chemicals or pesticides. Wellington Apiary honey is not heated at any stage of extraction or bottling, ensuring all the natural goodness remains. This honey is organically produced, cold extracted and coarse ltered, allowing all the pollen, avours and aromas to be retained – resulting in pure raw Tasmanian Honey, just as the bees made it.

THE BEE GOOD COMPANY

Pure Wilderness Honey
The honey’s journey from flower to honey pot begins with busy bees feeding on Leatherwood and Manuka trees hidden deep within Tasmania’s pristine Tarkine wilderness — where the bees drink the world’s cleanest water and breath its freshest air. The honey is then delivered from happy hives straight to the pot, ensuring that the flavour and health benefits of our honey remain uncompromised. Pure, raw, unheated and organic — our honey is nature’s finest.

Wellington Apiary Honey

Wellington Apiary began in 2009 in an established garden in the centre of Hobart by Robin and Antonia O’Brien. From wildflowers, their range has now extended to include the distinctive honeys and honeycomb from Tasmania’s unique flora.

One of Tasmania’s most distinctive tastes is the musky richness of honey from leatherwood blossoms. The O’Briens carry hives into the rainforests of western Tasmania, where leatherwoods flower in late summer. They return to collect a unique organically certified honey that commands a premium price. They also collect from the wildflowers around Hobart and from indigenous plants like Prickly Box, plus Tea Tree that produces the miraculous Manuka honey

They do not heat our honey at any stage of extraction or bottling, ensuring all the natural goodness remains. Wellington Apiary honey is coarse filtered, allowing all the pollen, flavours and aromas to be retained – resulting in pure raw Tasmanian Honey, just as the bees made it.

Wellington Apiary bees are housed in wooden wax dipped hives. This means the bees are kept in optimum health, free from any chemicals or paints. Antonia and Robin are passionate about sustainability and ensuring the future of beekeeping in Tasmania remains pest free.

Hobart Wildflower

In the centre of Hobart, bees from selected hives collect nectar from the luscious and botanically diverse gardens within the city. Bees access nectar from introduced flora such as Lavender and Citrus trees as well as native gums and shrubs to make this honey, which changes slightly each season.

Prickly Box

WINNER – delicious. Produce Awards 2015. The Prickly box (Bursaria spinose) is native to Tasmania, producing small, white, scented flowers during summer. Bees access the Prickly Box nectar on the warm hills in southern Tasmania’s Coal River Valley. Drought can seriously affect the Prickly Box honey flow, and this sought after honey is highly seasonal due to this.

Prickly Box Honey Tasting notes: The honey produced is golden, bright yellow in colour with a avour ranging from nutty caramel. This honey is less sweet than most, cleansing the palette with little after taste. It is perfect accompanying cheese platters, sweetening tea or coee and smothered over buttered toast.

Manuka

Our Manuka honey (Leptospermum Scorparium) comes from the World Heritage reserve in Tasmania’s western half. In the valleys and plains of the western forests, button grass and Manuka are the dominant species. The hives are moved in early December to the remote and beautiful western forests, and if the weather is kind and warm, Manuka will flower giving our bees their first honey crop of the season.

Our Manuka honey is made from bees gathering nectar in a World Heritage Area deep in some of the oldest living forests on earth that is pristine, and many kilometres away from civilisation. There are few places on earth like these ancient forests where our bees drink the cleanest water, breath the freshest air and gather nectar from Manuka trees to produce pure, raw, unheated, organic honey.

Leatherwood

FINALIST – delicious. Produce Awards 2015 The Leatherwood tree (Eucryphia lucida) is native to Tasmania, producing small, white, strongly scented flowers during late summer. Bees access the Leatherwood trees from apiaries on the west coast of Tasmania, deep in the World Heritage Area. They spend around six months of the year on these apiaries where they not only produce honey but remain when hibernating during winter. The slow growing Leatherwood forests were significantly damaged and reduced after the bushfires during January 2016 that engulfed the western coast of Tasmania, having a devastating impact on the Tasmanian beekeeping industry. Leatherwood honey is so distinctive it has been included in the International Ark of Taste (an international society that recognises rare, endangered and culturally significant foods).
