Jarrah Honey in WA


#1

This may be of interest

It’s quite sad that the prospect of producing more Jarrah honey is due to the disappearing state forests.
Once the log trucks had nothing under a metre in diameter now you rarely see one that big most being in the range 300mm to 500 mm diameter.
Logging has slowed in recent years but old growth forests are still being logged to satisfy the sawn timber market and little effort is being made to replace like with like. Much easier to replace with quick growing trees like pine and blue gums.

Then there is this recall on adulterated Manuka honey.
According to some posts on NZ beekeeping sites the adulterants are common knowledge.
That will shake the industry up somewhat.
