What is Virgin Honey

Virgin Honey is honey that is unadulterated – either through heating or micro filtering. It’s honey straight from the hive.

As an amateur new-bee apiarist (bee keeper), I am still learning about the world of bees and of bee keeping. One of the many interesting but disappointing things I have learned is that even honey that is marketed as “local” is often a mixture of locally sourced honey and honey from hives much further afield. It’s not possible to predict when there will be a honey flow, so commercial apiarists often outsource some of their honey to meet demand.

My aim is to stay small and produce and sell products made solely from the honey from my own hives situated at Virginia in Brisbane. Being inner-city hives, my bees will forage a range of native and introduced species which I will keep you posted about. Usually, it takes around 2-3 weeks after flowering for honey to be harvested so you can keep track of the honey bouquet that you like best.
