AUSTRALIAN WILD HONEY

From our bee-friendly Warré hives situated in the Blue Mountains wilderness and high altitude woodlands of the Central Ranges

~~•~*~•~~

Welcome

Malfroy's Gold is a natural beekeeping company specialising in producing pure varieties of Wild honey and honeycomb harvested from bee-friendly Warré hives. Our apiaries are located in the word heritage listed Blue Mountains and woodland forests of the Central Tablelands, NSW, Australia.

Our natural beekeeping practices surpass the national organic and international Demeter biodynamic guidelines for apiculture. We call our honey ‘Wild’ for this reason, as it is produced in an entirely natural way; by wild bees in a wild environment. All of our honey is produced from 100% natural comb, has high medicinal activity, is unheated and rich in bee bread (pollen).

We attempt at all times to operate a sustainable business, developed out of love and respect for the Natural world and for the ‘daughters of light’.

Thank you for visiting,
Tim and Emma Malfroy

NATURAL BEEKEEPING - ABOUT WILD HONEY

How we Produce our Wild Honey products

Natural beekeeping with Warré hives results in healthy bees and genuinely ethical and sustainable honey.

Wild honey is the rare medicine produced as a result of the natural beekeeping process. Although we keep bees in a bee-friendly manner for ethical reasons, we believe that the health and well-being of our bees greatly improves the quality, purity and nutritional integrity of the honey. The Wild honey from our Warré hives has been awarded multiple Gold Medals at the .delicious Produce Awards, is championed by some of Australia’s leading chefs and has a different flavour, texture and composition to conventionally produced honey.

NATURAL BEEKEEPING

Natural Beekeeping aims to provide for the needs of the bee colony above that of the beekeeper. It is a holistic approach based on respect and love for the bee colony. Bee-centric apiculture attempts to mimic how bees have thrived for millions of years without the aid of a keeper. Traditional/pre-industrial methods are combined with findings from modern scientific research to improve bee health, limit impact on the environment and provide the community with a medicinal food.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Our Wild honey is rich in bee bread and propolis, giving the honey a deep and complex flavour profile, unique texture and high medicinal activity. Our bioactive Post Brood Wild Honey contains more than 144 times the amount of pollen found in organic ‘raw’ honey and has a TA rating of 26+. Bee bread contains hundreds of species of beneficial bacteria and aids in gut health. Propolis is made by the bees from the kino (resin) exuded by the unique plants of the Blue Mountains world heritage area and is proven to be antibacterial and antiseptic.

WARRÉ HIVES

Natural Beekeeping often leads to a complete re-thinking of conventional beekeeping management and hive design. The concept of an alternative style of apiculture that is bee-friendly and ethical resonated with us as our focus has never been on intensive honey production. Since 2009 we have pioneered the use of the bee-friendly Warré hive in Australia, adapting the design and methods for our conditions. The Warré hives we make are built from local salvaged timber and are designed to mimic a tree hollow, the perfect home for a honeybee colony.

    Sometimes a great product is just a great product… and that is cool. Other times there is a true sense of the life and story of a product within. A different type of connection. Malfroys Gold somehow captures the magic of Tim’s knowledge, love and effort, right there in the jar. Its as much a pleasure eating and working with this amazing product as it is to continue to learn about the incredible process used to create such beautiful honey.

    It is rare in our industry that we find a product that is transformative. Malfroy’s honey is Australia’s wild essence captured in a jar, unfiltered, unadulterated, exquisite. A single vision of one man who goes into the most remote areas of our beautiful land to capture what only nature can do. For me, a most extraordinary journey.
