  • Raw Honey (currently out of stock)
  • Comb Honey (currently out of stock)
  • Soaps/Lip balms made by Lather Up Australia from our beeswax/honey

If you already have a hive (or have ordered one) and would like regular hive/brood health checks please feel free to contact me direct.

We’re the Victorian agent for Kangaroo Island Ligurian Queen Bees and will be able to supply both Ligurian Queens and 5 frame Nucleus Hives towards the end of 2015 - just in time for your Flow Hive deliveries! :smiley:

Pre-orders are required as there will be a limited supply. The Ligurian bees are perfect for the beginner beekeeper and for urban environments. They come from disease free Kangaroo Island and are both productive and very gentle. Please send us a message should you be interested.
