Melbourne Multifloral Honey
The taste, flavour, consistency and colour of Backyard Honey’s pure raw unheated multi-floral Melbourne honeys reflect the floral abundance and landscape seasonality of Melbourne gardens. Each hive and Season produces a unique, small batch honey that is then tripled strained by our Bee Team to deliver a premium quality honey. On the side of each pot, you'll find when and where the honey was extracted from with over 15 suburbs to choose from in addition to all up Gardens of Melbourne blend.
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: Crystallisation is a natural process that can be reversed by placing pots of honey in a warm water bath or in oven, less than 45 C. Temperatures above 45C will diminish the natural health benefits of the honeys.
Raw Honeycomb Frames
If you're looking to add a touch of elegance or sophistication to your next cheese platter, why not consider some raw honeycomb, straight from the hive as nature intended. Our frames of raw honeycomb are fully ripe, pulled straight from the hive and never heated.
