Chestnuts (Castanea sativa) are large, fast-growing deciduous trees that produce nut crops during the Autumn.
In Australia, Chestnut trees grow 800m above sea level in climates that are hot in summer and cold in winter. North east Victoria grows 75% of Australia’s chestnuts but they do not yield nectar like they do in Europe and therefore it is extremely rare for chestnut honey to be produced.
The flavours of single varietal honey reflect a plant source and its unique flowers, pollen and nectar. Our single varietal honeys are a true reflection of nature with each plant species creating distinctly different colours, tastes and textures of honey.
“Our aim is to educate people on the diversity of uses for honey and the fact 65% of Australia’s agricultural produce is pollinated by honeybees. This reveals just how important they truly are to our food security.”
