* Goldfields Blackbutt
October to December

August to February
Jarrah Eucalyptus marginata
Sourced from forest and farms near Dwellingup and Harvey
Jarrah is one of the most prized honeys in Western Australia. It’s a thick, dark and rich honey that doesn’t crystalise. We are fast losing our Jarrah forests to logging, so finding it can be difficult and makes it rare. Recent research indicates that it has high antimicrobial levels making it a perfect medicinal honey. We look forward to new information as it is released.
Generally flowers September to January
Wandoo (Whitegum) Eucalyptus redunca var. elata
Sourced from farms at Wandering and Williams
Crystalises but is a very tasty toffee like honey. It’s a favourite in our coffee or for a light marinade for summer barbeques.
Flowers January to February
Marri (Redgum) Eucalyptus calophylla
Sourced from farms in the Cape Naturaliste region
Like Jarrah, Marri honey has recently been proven to have very high antimicrobial properties. Regardless of this fact, we think it is a great multipurpose honey. It is thick and definitely the choice for lemon and ginger tea.
Flowers February to March (sometimes flowers during December and January)
Karri Eucalyptus diversicolour
Sourced from farming properties near Northcliffe and Pemberton.
A light golden colour leaving a soft sweet flavour on the palate. Perfect for crumpets if you don’t want too much sugar!
Flowers through the year but mainly from December or January until April
Peppermint Agonis flexuosa
Sourced from local farms around Cape Naturaliste
With a tangy peppermint flavour – peppi is popular because it is really different. There is no research into it properties, however, for local people with allergies, it is recommended as a potential way to build up tolerance to the blossom.
Long flowering period from spring to late autumn
Sourced from the north Bindoon to Greenhead near Beekeepers Reserve
This honey has a distinctive floral flavour, a result of the bees searching in an abundant area of native flowers. Each year brings a changing flavour depending on what the bees find and generally, the honey will crystalise fairly quickly. A great honey for fruit salads and salads.
We head north for flowers in autumn
Honey’s unique health benefits are the subject of folklore. It’s now a scientific fact that some honeys have excellent natural antimicrobial activities and in the near future we may know more about how and why certain honeys reduce inflammation or prevent hay fever and similar allergies.
Beekeeper direct raw honey ensures your honey has all the natural flavours and enzymes preserved.
