"There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance."
- Henry David Thoreau
Honey Tasmania invites you to experience the delicious and fascinating world of honey, learn about the remarkable journey from flower source to jar and appreciate the wonder that is the honeybee.
Our new shop "The Beehive" is almost ready to open...
We know you have all been waiting for longer than originally planned. Problems in our signage have held us up. Hang in there a few more weeks - we guarantee you will not be disappointed! (And in the meantime, you can still find us at Harvest Launceston, northern Tasmania's award-winning farmer's market, every Saturday morning.)
In The Beehive, you will be able taste uniquely different varieties of pure raw honey made by our millions of industrious bees. We move our hives to various locations in the north of Tasmania, following the flow of nectar and pollen, allowing us to bring you over 15 distinctive honeys.
We are also showcasing a wonderful new display beehive, where you can watch the queen laying eggs, see a new baby emerge from a cell and experience the delight of the bees communicating through their waggle dance.
Along with our delicious honey, we will continue our sales of honey alcohol (the largest selection in Australia), beauty products made from honey and beeswax, honey and bee related handmade gifts, books and many more honeybee focused products.
Meet Tristan and Rebecca, the beekeeper and the honey seller, who are two of the most passionate and knowledgeable bee lovers you will find - either at the shop or at the Harvest Market.
We also urge you all to learn from the hive mentality - use the power from a collective response to stress and difficulties which will allow survival, rather than focusing on individual gain and personal interest as a response to challenges we face.
