Forest Hill honey
$12.00 – $20.00
Our primary apiary is located between Forest Hill Reserve and Jolimont Community Garden (Australia’s oldest one!), giving the honey a floral taste that varies depending on the season. The last batch was described as “light, summery, thick mouth feel, floral, fruity with orange citrus notes.”
We have one other location in Forest Hill, located 1200 meters away, close to the Blackburn Lake reserve.

Reviews from David & Anita:
The January 2022 harvest (Husband Rd):
A classic vintage style honey, light orange in colour with hints of delicious butterscotch and peanut brittle.
The November 2021 harvest (Yea Ct):
Butterscotch and subtle notes of liquorice and tangerine. Perfect for a honey roast confit of duck or burnt honey glazed butter carrots.
The October 2021 harvest (Husband Rd):
Don’t be fooled, this straw coloured, medium plus acid gem, packs a punch. The viscous texture adds to the sweet experience with notes of lavender, licorice and tea tree oil. Finishes strongly with a smooth freshness that lingers. This honey would be fabulous with a rich slice of creamy Camembert.
The March 2021 harvest (Husband Rd):
A dusty opaque orange, with low viscosity yet distinctive notes of liquorice and molasses, reminiscent of an old fashioned choo choo bar.
The February 2021 harvest (Husband Rd):
Sweet, creamy mouth feel, with long lasting notes of Chinese Five Spice and cinnamon. Can’t wait to add this to my favourite crispy noodle salad dressing.
The January 2021 harvest (Husband Rd):
Quite a dense, woody and nutty honey, with a hint of burnt toast, similar to the famous leatherwood honeys of Tasmania. It’s obvious the bees have really feasted on a floral variety here.
The January 2021 harvest (Mill St):
Runny and thin yet creamy buttery mouth feel. Flavours of orange zest with a finish not unlike an Aperol Spritz.
The December 2020 harvest (Yea Ct):
Smoky and rich, the acid drives the senses into thoughts of sweet and sour sauces. A complex honey for those that like something different.
The December 2020 harvest (Mill St):
Light in colour yet chewy in texture. Sweetness up front, then transforms itself into an earthy limestone bomb. Earthiest and most acidic honey we have tasted. For the connoisseurs.
