The variety of honey entirely relies on the type of plant that a bee collects pollen and nectar from. To give their bees a greater choice in the plants that are visited, Pure Peninsula Honey transports its bees regularly from one location to another. The transportation of the beehives enables honey consumers to experience a wider range of mouth-watering flavours. Honey is cold extracted to the jar which captures all of its natural goodness. Honey is Gluten Free and 100% fat free.
Our hives are placed in the middle of a large forest where the trees are free from chemicals and insecticides. Bees fly a maximum of 5km radius from their hive, which ensures that the honey produced here is organic. The honey is cold extracted and certified with Biological Farmers Australia. Also known as raw honey.

Pure peninsula honey also collects propolis and pollen from the hives. Pollen, when consumed, releases many beneficial amino acids and protein chains into the body for absorption. Pollen contains such amino acids as lysine, which prevents cold sores, and glycine, which has shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. Propolis, which is collected from the hive, is a natural antibiotic for the immune system. Propolis is collected from plants by the bees.
