Pure honey... as nature intended
With the availability of world honeys increasing, it's difficult to know at times exactly what's in the jar.
Commercial beekeeping often means that the bees are farmed and put under extreme pressure to produce the sweet nectar, resulting in ever decreasing yield, and the need to supplement the honey making process with extra feeds and artificial sweeteners.
At the Gum Tree Apiary we're proud to offer 100% pure honey, as nature intended.
The bees are cared for using traditional methods, and thrive in their natural environments - protected bushlands free from artificial fertilizers or weedkillers.

A very low glucose level makes our Jarrah honey an ideal substitute for sugar. The rich amber colour and caramel consistency deliver a unique full bodied syrupy flavour.
The Total Activity Rating of Active Honey denotes the strength of the antibacterial potency of the honey, measured by the standard (phenol) bacteria-killing scale, as developed by Dr. Nolan.
Black Butt trees grow in moist soil usually near rivers and creeks in the Jarrah forests. Like many Eucalyptus trees, Blackbutt is becoming rare both due to logging and unpredictable flowering. The honey is dark in colour, similar to Jarrah - it stays liquid for a long time.
Red Gum Honey
Red Gum (Marri) trees are widespread in the Australian bushland and generally flower each year, usually from February to March producing a light coloured honey with sweet perfumed tones.
York Gum Honey
Delicious rich creamy consistency and butterscotch flavour make this honey a firm favourite with families.
York Gum is an excellent source of Pollen and Honey from around September to December each year.
Wandoo honey is light in colour and delivers an irresistable flavour. These days the trees are scarce and wandoo forests are preserved for recreation and watershed protection making this honey a precious commodity.
It grows as a small to medium-sized tree up to 25 metres in height. It has smooth bark, often in mottled patches of white, light grey, light brown light yellow and pink.
