Victorian Multifloral Honey

The taste, flavour, consistency and colour of Backyard Honey’s pure raw unheated multi-floral regional Victorian honey reflect the floral abundance and landscape seasonality of Victoria’s remnant indigenous foothill forests and woodlands. 

 

Victorian Varietal Honey

The distinctive flavour, colour and consistency of our seasonally available Victorian varietal honeys reflect the unique climate, nectars and pollens of the river flats, orchards, ranges and forest location of each varietal's origins: 

  • Messmate Forest Varietal:  Rich, robust and a hint of roasted hazelnut 

  • Red Gum Forest Varietal: Luscious, smooth with hints of spice 

  • Yellow Gum Forest Varietal:  Golden Aussie family classic 

  • Citrus Grove Varietal: Aromatic, bursting with light summer citrus zest 

 

NOTE:  Crystallization is a natural process that can be reversed by placing pots of honey in a warm water bath less than 45 C.  Temperatures above 45C will diminish the natural health benefits of the honeys.​
