The Tasmanian Honey Company began in 1978 as the concept of Julian Wolfhagen, a beekeeper with a profound passion for Tasmania, its wild forests and the honey that they produce. Today we employ more than a dozen staff and export pure, beautifully packaged honey. Our success has largely been built on our passion for, and our commitment to the production of wild and uncompromised leatherwood honey, which we like to think of as the distillate of the wilderness. Julian was involved with bees as a child, however a re-acquaintance with bees and honey via a bottle of mead shared around the fire on a cold winters night, planted an inspirational “seed” that was to grow into what is now the Tasmanian Honey Company. The business has thrived ever since.
Why our honey is different?
Our extracting and packing temperature is maintained below 45C, ensuring that the flavour and health benefits of our honey remain uncompromised.
We have perfected the art of creating a fine, soft candied honey that is easy to drizzle, and has wonderful mouth feel. Candied honey is your guarantee that the product has not been diluted with syrup or over heated.
We manage all of our own beehives. This enables us to ensure that our bees only collect nectar from areas that are free of unpleasant agricultural and industrial activities.
We have developed a comprehensive Quality Management System, and are HACCP certified. Our honey contains no additives.
It is wild honey, sourced from a pristine environment and packaged with minimal handling.
