You wouldn’t be able to enjoy honey without it, but did you know that honeycomb can be eaten and enjoyed too? Straight from the hive, raw honeycomb and honey is a sensory celebration and are packed full of nutritious vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants.
What is Raw Honeycomb?
Honeycomb is the internal structure of the honeybee hive, that is built by bees from beeswax. The honeycomb is made up of repeating hexagonal cells that are used by the colony in many ways but when harvested are full of pure raw honey. Honeycomb is precious – a honeybee has to consume 8kg of honey to produce just 1kg of beeswax.
The beeswax comb that contains raw honey is 100% natural and edible. Whilst our system does not break down beeswax, it is safe to eat.
A natural beauty, the addition of raw honeycomb will take your cheese platter to new heights. The honey pairs particularly well with soft cheese like brie and camembert. It’s also a lovely decadent topping to your bowl of ice cream or atop your favourite cake. Or you can simply chew on a piece to enjoy the raw honey and texture of the beeswax!

Minimal intervention and a light touch ensures that all of our honey is in fact defined as raw honey! Let us take you through what that process looks like.
Single Varietal Honey
Australia has the largest collection of single varietal honey in the world. Single varietal honeys are a true reflection of nature with each plant species creating distinctly different colours, tastes and textures of honey.
