Kangaroo Island Liquid Gold Honey is raw and certified organic by NASAA (National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia).
Available in jars of 140g, 350g and 500g.
The bees gather nectar from the flowers of different plants and trees across pre-set sights on Kangaroo Island. Bees only travel within 2km of their hive so the hives are moved around the island to where particular plants or trees are flowering in abundance. This takes advantage of the natural flora of the island. At the same time, it is important to ensure that hives remain a distance of 5km from crops that may affect the organic status of the honey. When the flower is finished in one area a different type of flower may begin elsewhere and the bees are then moved to the new flower location. Generally there is something flowering on Kangaroo Island all year round.
Bees love temperatures above 18°C. The hotter it is, the harder they work. So they work the hardest in late spring and summer. During winter the bees only have the opportunity to gather nectar when weather permits and they tend to only produce enough honey to feed themselves. So through winter their hives are left alone, avoiding harvesting any honey at that time as it may weaken the hive.
