About Us

The Gum Tree Apiary of Western Australia has its roots firmly entrenched in traditions passed down through generations of the Koch family to Paul, who was raised in the practice of beekeeping in South Africa.

"With the establishment of the Gum Tree Apiary, we realized the importance of technology in terms of production, marketing and distribution and set out to ensure that we can consistently deliver our purest honey to all corners of the globe," says Paul. "Our focus is on producing a select range of gourmet honey extracted from our 600 hives in the environmentally pristine bushland of Western Australia."

We are active members of the Western Australian Beekeepers Association, the Australian Honey Producers Association, the Bee Industry Council of Western Australia (BICWA) and the Better Bees WA breeding programme.

We are licensed with the Australian Department of Agriculture and strive to ensure that our honeys are produced to the highest possible levels of taste, goodness and purity.

Our premise has been B-QUAL certified since 2014. In 2021, we lost our home and extraction premise in the Wooroloo bushfires. Everything was destroyed; however, we have been fortunate enough to rebuild with brand-new, modern, state-of-the-art extraction equipment and facilities.

We look forward to fulfilling your honey requirements, big or small.
