It started in the family’s backyard….
When Melbourne’s Backyard Honey beekeepers, Peter and Jane Dyer, realised that while many people dreamed of having beehives and harvesting their own pure raw unheated honey, they often did not have the time or apiary experience required.
Inspired by this, Peter and Jane Dyer pursued their beekeeping passion and developed Backyard Honey, an innovative Melbourne urban beekeeping business to:
• Sell healthy beehives
• Maintain heathy hives
• Harvest raw local honey and beeswax
• Supply beekeeping equipment and services
• Raise positive community pollinator awareness
• Positively impact on local bio-diversity
• Improve the pollination of local gardens
Backyard Honey’s beekeepers love what they do - and hope you do too!

Backyard Honey acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, including the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, traditional custodians of the land where the Backyard Honey “Apiary” is based.

Our Honey. Our Bees
Backyard Honey’s pure, 100% all-natural, raw Australian honeys are a cut above the rest. Our biodynamic beekeeping ensures premium quality honey and optimum bee health.
We choose to site our beehives at ground level, where colonies are protected from extreme scorching summer heat and cold winds, in aspects compliant with the Victorian Apiary Code of Practice.
