'Veiled in this fragile filigree of wax is the essence of sunshine, golden and limpid... Honey, even more than wine, is a reflection of place...
(it) is the flower transmuted, its scent and beauty transformed into aroma and taste'
Honey from Flower to Table, 2002, Stephanie Rosenbaum

Mountain Meadow Post Brood Polyflora


An extraordinary honey that delivers intensity and vitality, a true sense of ultimate concentration with layers of aroma and flavour, deeply satisfying richness and yet a levity of spice and lifted freshness after each mouthful. Likewise, this is a honey for texture-seekers, a palate-saturating richness and chewy pucker is inherent. While aromas are understated, there’s plenty to seek out and enjoy with sweet, savoury and spicy all finding equal footing. Such an evocative thing to consume.

Colour: Speckled, rich caramel-gold, hazy-cloudy (variations in colour can appear)
Texture: Creamy, slippery then pleasingly powdery with a lively, lifted finish
Aromas:A quieter perfume with toffee, dried flowers, salted caramel, eucalyptus and dried orange peel
Flavours: Light caramel with sugared almond notes, dried mixed peel, some raw sugar characters and lemon myrtle

I’ve been veggie most of my life and lived an ethical vegan lifestyle the past few years but I always thought I should be eating Honey. I’ve searched high and low so thank goodness for you guys! Thanks for caring about the bees :)

This is the second time ordering your honey and just like the first time I am thoroughly enjoying it. It's almost impossible to find honey nowadays similar to how you make yours. Continue doing what your doing and hopefully others follow for the sake of everyone and everything on this planet.
Ahmad, Sydney, August 2014
We saw you today at the sustainable expo with Kylie Kwong and were very impressed. Keep up the good work and thank you for going the extra mile to bring us city folk the goodness as it should be.
Therese and Paul, Sydney, July 2012
I am totally hooked to your honey after purchasing some from the Carrington Cellars in Katoomba. Kind regards and thank you for producing such wonderful product
Clemence, Australia, May 2012
You have the best looking honey jars - the jar and the label together are just outstanding. You have a beautiful web page too!
Neil, USA, March 2019
I purchased some of your honey at a food event at Centennial Park some time ago and loved it. I would love to share the honey with my family and friends and was thinking about giving a 150g jar to each of our wedding guests - like bonbonerie, only it would be far more special than any sugar coated almonds.

This pure Australian wild honey is produced from 100% natural comb in bee-friendly Warré apiaries in the high altitude woodlands of the Central Tablelands, NSW. It is a unique honey harvested exclusively from ‘post-brood’ combs. Aged for up to 5 years in the hive, post-brood combs contain both the essence of the bee colony superorganism and the plants' nectar, pollen and ‘kino’ resins. We are the only commercial producer of this honey in Australia.

In the lead up to the bee season of 2019/20, the Central Tablelands (and much of NSW) had suffered through the most extreme drought in recorded history. The drought finally broke and the rains that fell on parched ground triggered a flowering of ground flora species that are rarely seen.

Most honeys in Australia are dominated by the ubiquitous flowering Eucalypts (of which there are over 800 species in nearly all bioregions across the continent). However, the high rainfall resulted in the Eucalypts putting all their energies into regrowing leaves after the stress of the drought, rather than flowering.

Therefore, this honey can be described as a ‘La Niña’ honey - a result of this weather event that occurs once every 10 years or so. To read more about the La Niña / El Niño weather patterns that influence the ecology and agriculture of south-east Australia, see these articles by the Bureau of Meteorology: What is La Niña, Understanding ENSO

The Post Brood version of our Mountain Meadow honey is produced from combs that have come through the broodnest over a number of years, giving the honey a pleasing, spicy nuttiness (owing to the propolis and bee bread inherent in the dark post brood combs). It has a perfumed aroma and a flavour profile quite unlike our other varieties.

Our wild honey has proven medicinal activity. Eating small amounts regularly, straight from the jar should aid general health and wellbeing.

As our Wild honey is pressed from virgin comb it may be crystallised in the jar. Pressed honey often has a cloudy or opaque appearance and soft, thick, even texture with finely grained crystals.

Storage Instructions and Important Information

Store in a cool, dry and dark place. Best temperature range for storage and serving is between 15 and 25°C.

Our Wild Honey is bottled in glass jars and all orders are sent with Australia Post's ‘special wine order - fragile’ tape attached, which notifies Australia Post employees to carefully handle the parcel. We also take great care in packaging the product securely for transit.

Wild honeys from Warré hives contain bee bread (pollen fermented by beneficial bacteria) and propolis showing proven antioxidant and medicinal activity. In extremely rare cases, pollen can cause allergic reactions.

Our Wild Honey and Wild Honeycomb is naturally gluten free. It contains no wheat, barley, rye or oats or their by-products. Malfroy’s Gold facilities do not process or store anything containing gluten - we only extract and pack our own bee produce onsite.

Please note: As our honey is seasonal, wild, harvested from small apiaries, and bottled in micro batches, natural variation in colour, texture and pollen richness will occur from batch to batch. The honey you receive may be a slightly different colour from that pictured above but rest assured it is the same variety. We do not overheat, filter or homogenise our honey to make every jar uniform in colour and texture as that damages the nutritional integrity of the honey. The honey also naturally varies in colour over time inside the jar as it is a living product - this ongoing process will not negatively affect the wild honey’s taste or nutritional integrity.
