I love honey and recently I had the pleasure of trying Backyard Honey. I must say the flavour is amazing and the texture is so smooth. I would recommend Backyard Honey to everyone. If you like honey give it a try.

Backyard Honey is a small community-based company that offers a unique service of installing bee hives in backyards and are strong advocates for the importance of bees in the environment. Jane and Peter Dyer are passionate about what they do and willingly share their time and expertise with the undergraduate students supporting the Community Science project unit at Deakin University and the wider community. Backyard Honey has provided the students with wonderful learning opportunities including the biology of the bees and the hive hierarchy, their importance in the environment, honey production and they provide an opportunity to share this expertise with the community. Thank you Jane and Peter for your ongoing support of the Community Science Project.
- Jan West Assoc Prof, Deakin University
We hand-picked ‘Yellow box’ Backyard Honey for our honeycomb because of its full bodied and delicious flavour. We love that the honey is local and pure and that we can speak directly to the beekeepers Jane & Peter.

The Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre acknowledges the fantastic work done by Backyard Honey in helping to educate people about the importance of bees in the ecosystem and in using a community approach to assist people in bee keeping.

When we opened our bakery in 2014, we sought out suppliers who shared our values of quality and environmental sustainability. Backyard Honey immediately impressed with their raw, untreated, pure honey, produced with love and skill by Peter and Jane Dyer.
Peter and Jane have collaborated with us in running workshops - Bees in the Burbs - to encourage home beekeeping and the maintenance of bee friendly gardens. They are the real deal - active, sincere and committed!
- Christian, Trish and Alan Blackman, The Honey Thief Bakery
"Absolutely love the whole Backyard Honey concept “hive to heart. Beautiful quality honey that's significantly superior, packed with pollen and nectars from my hood. Can't beat that! ”
