About Us

Hampton Hives Honey is collected from local beehives, primarily in the Melbourne Bayside area.¬†The bees collect nectar from a myriad of flower varieties growing in suburban gardens and parks rather than from crops or plantations and this accounts for Hampton Hives Honey’s sumptuous flavour.

We collect the honeycomb from our own hives and carefully extract and strain the honey at room temperature. Excessive heat speeds up the processing of honey but unfortunately this can destroy many of the health benefits, so by taking the time to extract at room temperature, the honey retains its maximum health value.
