Unspun Honey


Artisan Apicentric Apiary

ETHICAL BEEKEEPING

Welcome to Unspun Honey! We are a small, apicentric apiary in Mount Gambier, South Australia.  I raise my bees using organic best-practices in warré hives with minimal disturbance throughout the year.  This means healthier bees and stronger, thicker honey comb.  I extract honey by crushing the comb, not spinning it out and heating it - ensuring that the honey retains maximum flavour.  This is raw, wild honey as it was meant to taste.  This is honey with a conscience!  

 

Local HYGIENIC Queens

I breed queen bees that are hygienic, docile, and good honey producers, cross-bred from a wide range of locally adapted strains.  My hope is that by rearing hardy local queens I can reduce the industrial stress often placed on bees in the pollination industry, thereby making it easier for fellow beekeepers to follow ethical practices in their own apiaries.  They aren't a particular "breed" of bee - they are locally adapted hybrids.

Artisan Honey And Wax

All my honey is hand-pressed at room temperature in a stainless-steel hand press, directly into glass containers to preserve the natural flavour and beneficial properties attributed to wild honey.  Each batch of honey is unique to the location of the hive and the season, and no two batches are the same.  All of my honey is multifloral.  

Bee Rescue

Sometimes bees will make poor or desperate living choices, so I do live bee removal.  I'll get them out of wheelie bins, old walls, or anywhere that you don't mind me "opening up".  Call me for a price quote!  Sometimes it's free, but usually there's a fee involved.
