FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Bee-Inspired at the Grand Opening of Beechworth Honey Discovery
Beechworth, Victoria, 27th November 2014

On Friday 5th December Beechworth Honey will open it’s second centre in Beechworth; Beechworth Honey Discovery.

The former historic Bank of NSW located at 87 Ford Street has been beautifully renovated and extended to build Australia’s most comprehensive honeybee education and resource centre with the aim to highlight the important link between honeybees and our food supply.

“Beechworth Honey Discovery is the result of our passion for bees and love for the Australian honey industry. It is also our commitment to developing a better future for Australia’s beekeepers” commented Jodie Goldsworthy.

For more than two years the team at Beechworth Honey has creatively choreographed an amazing and unique set of elements where you will; 

  • Enjoy amazing bee-inspired food from Australia’s first ever “Bee-Rated” menu in the Food Bowl
  • Sip on delicious signature Beechworth Honey Mead in the historic cellar door
  • Wander through the Bee Garden featuring a working honeybee colony, native bee hotels and kitchen garden
  • Entertain the kids for hours with interactive activities in the Blossom Bee Playspace
  • Follow the Waggle Walk and learn all about a year in the life of a beekeeper
  • Browse the General Store offering products made with honey or sourced from produce pollinated by bees, and exquisite honeybee themed kitchen and home wares
  • Research and discover amazing historical information in the unique Historical Archive and Museum that will become known as Australia’s most comprehensive beekeeping and research centre 
  • Participate in hands-on workshops in the Hive Kitchen, a purpose-build demonstration kitchen and workshop space to host cooking classes and activities related to honeybees, food security and beekeeping
  • Relax while cruising around the Blossom to Blossom Cycle Ride on Beechworth Honey bikes
     

As a further extension of the various products Beechworth Honey produce, four varieties of Beechworth Honey Mead will be launched during the Grand Opening celebrations. The mead has been developed over the past two years by combining Beechworth Honey’s knowledge of Australian honey with the skills of mead maker Brendan Heath.  “We are certain that the Beechworth Honey Mead range will not be what people expect” said Jodie Goldsworthy.

The centre will be open to the public at 3pm on Friday 5th December with celebrity chef Ed Halamgyi conducting an inaugural free cooking demonstration. The opening weekend also includes exciting demonstrations and talks.

On Sunday Beechworth Honey Discovery will then host it’s first cooking workshop in the Hive Kitchen. Hosted by Umbrian-Australian chef Patrizia Simone of the award-winning Simone’s Restaurant in Bright, participants of this exclusive sold-out event will be delighted with the hands-on cooking class where they will make a range of delicious sweet treats just in time for Christmas.

Visitors to Beechworth will now be able to eat, discover and learn at Beechworth Honey’s two unique centres in Beechworth- Beechworth Honey Experience located at 31 Ford Street, and Beechworth Honey Discovery located at 87 Ford Street.

The opening of Beechworth Honey Discovery cements Beechworth Honey’s reputation as Australia’s most innovative and trusted Australian honey company.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nothing sweet about national honey shortage
Beechworth, Victoria, 10th April 2014

Australian beekeepers are facing honey production losses of between 50% and 90% as a result of weather events, heatwaves, bushfires and drought across vast areas of Australia, said Beechworth Honey today.

Jodie Goldsworthy, owner and director of Beechworth Honey said that production for honey this season has been very difficult which has resulted in the Australian honey crop being severely impacted with estimates that there will only be about half the amount produced as is normally produced.

“These difficult climatic conditions have resulted in much lower than normal volumes of honey being available to Beechworth Honey and everyone else involved in the Australian honey industry,” Said Ms Goldsworthy.

“For companies like Beechworth Honey which will only ever use 100% Australian honey this has meant that we have had no option but to request voluntary deletions from the major supermarkets for some of our high volume fast moving lines.”

“Customers will notice that our 1.5kg will become unavailable as our customers stocks deplete on the shelves. Customers will also notice that prices for Australian honey across the board are increasing as the shortages hit.”

“We expect to see imported honey begin to appear in other brands in the market but Beechworth Honey will manage the shortage by downsizing its markets in order to accommodate the reduced supply.”

“We sincerely apologise for this but want to stress that when things return to normal as they will in the coming 12 months we will be back. We will never compromise on quality but can only make available what Mother Nature allows us to.”

“Times such as these are also a good opportunity to reflect on how important bees and Australian beekeepers are to the broader pollination of our food supply and to perhaps focus with more resolve on working towards proactively managing and raising awareness of the complex, cumulative and interrelated threats to honeybees.”

“Visitors to Beechworth might notice the expansion of Beechworth Honey educational facilities and the development of the Beechworth Honey Discovery. We are confident in the future of the Australian honey industry. Building a honey discovery centre during a severe honey drought really raises the image of a pub with no beer, from 4 generations as honey producers we know that the honey will flow again,” concluded Ms Goldsworthy.
