'Wild honey has a scent - of freedom Dust - a scent of sunshine... But gold - nothing'

Mountain Meadow


An amazing honey, packed with character, emphatically distinct, delicious in every sense yet somewhat other-worldly in its Australian botanical/flora-laden personality. A benchmark release. So fragrant, so much detail in flavour, thick-set texture and almost best eaten off a small spoon than used in more conventional manners!

Colour: Blonde, hazy-cloudy
Texture: Firm butter-like texture
Aromas: Subtle, delicate aromas of alpine flowers and botanicals, pot pourri, juniper, chamomile and faint caramel
Flavours: Lemon myrtle, chamomile, light toffee, green mango, cinnamon, wattleseed nuttiness

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 that contrasts nicely with the other honeys in our range.

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. The bold characters of our other Wild Honeys are not as present here, instead this is an ethereal honey with subtle herbal notes, a malty character and a creamy fudge-like texture that perfectly captures time and place.

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
