Heathmont Honey

Lighting my smoker before examing the bees

We are located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, you can find us off Canterbury Rd in Heathmont, close to the Dandenong Creek. (Contact us). Our honey bees are located in bush land at the foot hills of the Dandenongs, at Heathcote (close to Bendigo) and Heathmont. At times the colonies are moved to other locations take advantage of other flowering blossom. The honey is cold extracted, high quality, wholesome and sold at local farmers markets and in produce shops. In below average years we purchase honey from selected beekeepers.
Honey and bees has intrigued me for years, my story of beekeeping started when I was 14 years old and Heathmont Honey was formed in 2004 from this passion.

We have a young family and both boys love Daddy's honey, it is consumed with breakfast, on bread, in hot drinks and used in cooking and as a sugar replacement.

Beekeeping is one of the most ancient crafts known to man, honey has been used for thousands of years but we are just starting to appreciate what was learnt, that honey is good for you. Proverbs 24:13 says, "Eat honey my son, for it is good for you; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste."
