Yellow Box Post Brood


Flavours: This is the first time that post brood honey has been produced from Yellow Box honey flow under the custodianship of the Malfroy family. It’s a generous mouthful of flavour, slippery with golden syrup flavours spiked with cinnamon spice with preserved lemon, ripe stone fruit, agave nectar characters woven through. Exotic in a way, but distinct for its richness of true, pure honey character and splendid in its light, honeysuckle floral lift of freshness to finish. Ultimately, a very complex, compelling honey.
Colour: Deep golden colour
Texture: The swish of rich caramel, with faint toffee-like stickiness
Aromas: Apricot tart, chamomile tea, crème brulee, an exotic whiff of sweet paprika, orange blossom, faint eucalyptus piquancy

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.

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.

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

You have the best looking honey jars - the jar and the label together are just outstanding. You have a beautiful web page too!

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.

A genuine ‘world first’, this Post Brood version of Yellow Box can only be produced in Warré hives and is a result of the unique nadiring process that is a core part of the the Warré beekeeping management philosophy. Empty boxes are given beneath the developing cluster and as the colony grows downwards the bees backfill the uppermost combs (that previously housed brood) with nectar, in this case from the iconic Yellow Box tree.

Yellow Box yields her nectar every two to four years over the hot, dry summer months and when the trees are in the height of bloom, the tablelands are alive with their floral, aromatic perfume.

The combs are removed from the hive and pressed gently at the end of the honeyflow. The liquid honey is settled and then bottled immediately into glass jars, where it sets into a smooth creamy texture.

Post brood combs contain the highest amounts of bee bread (fermented pollen) and propolis, resulting in an outstandingly rich and complex flavour.

This variety has a rating of TA 25+ (equivalent to UMF 15+ / MGO 1200). Eating small amounts regularly, straight from the jar should aid general health and wellbeing. Yellow Box also has the lowest GI rating of any Australian honey (35).

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.

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 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.
