Rodney grew up on a cattle farm, but diversified into beekeeping in his early twenties. Now bees take up most of his time. Sons Don & Greg also work full time in the apiary, at markets and preparing our honey for sale. We are located in North East Victoria – as beekeepers this provides a great range of landscape and bush to keep our bees healthy. Our bees are located in natural bush sites anywhere from the Murray to the Mountains depending on what plants or trees are flowering in any given area.

Healthy living is about being happy in what you do. Beekeeping provides a lifestyle that changes with the seasons, gets us out in the natural bush that we love and rewards us with great tasting honey.
Farmers’ markets have provided the opportunity to get our honey into the homes of so many new food lovers. Previously we had limited choices other than to sell our produce to large honey packers who did little for the integrity of our honey and hard work. Now we can be confident that when people buy our honey, under our name, that they are getting the best honey we can possibly supply.
