From humble beginnings our production line has expanded and we now have multiple staff sharing Julian’s passion for, and his commitment to, the production of wild and restorative honey harvested from the most pristine areas of Tasmania.
“Simply put, we have a Tasmanian advantage – Leatherwood honey is the honey bees produce from the nectar of the Leatherwood plants’ flower. The Leatherwood plant (Eucryphia lucida) is endemic to Tasmania, so you will only find true Tasmanian leatherwood honey that is produced in Tasmania.”
To ensure we harness the full quality of our honey we use a ‘minimal impact process’ from the time the honey is removed from the beehives until the honey is finally packaged and ready for consumption.
An important aspect of this method is keeping the honey at relatively low temperatures throughout the handling process. While other processes use high temperatures to make the honey easy to use, the maximum temperature we warm our honey to is less than 45 degrees Celsius for all the candied ranges.
No filtration is used in the process, cleaning is affected by straining, and at no point do we use any chemicals or additives whatsoever. The low-temperature process retains the floral essences and flavonoids and bio-active compounds that give honey its flavour and health benefits.
