Grassy Spur Olives

Our Honey

PURE, UNTREATED, UNBLENDED HONEY

This pure honey is produced by the bees on the Grassy Spur Olive grove and more recently on other olive groves in South Gippsland, set in the traditional dairy country of South Gippsland, with its rolling hills, clean air and the excellent rainfall. We keep the bees to assist in the pollination of the olive trees that are normally pollinated by the wind. If we have a wet period over the pollination period, we find the bees will still do their job.

The hives are located in the centre of our grove next to a large dam. The honey is predominately from white clover with the olive flower influence during our pollination period in early-summer.  Later in summer the honey will be influenced by native trees flowering and will be a darker colour.

We do not blend or heat treat the honey in any way. We extract it manually from the frames, lightly filter and then bottle.  This often is referred to as "raw" honey.

When honey gets crystallized, does that mean its “bad”?

NO. Honey does not go bad. Most honey will crystallize over time, meaning you can’t see through it anymore, and it becomes less liquid and more solid. This is a natural process for honey, and will happen sooner in some than in others. THIS IS A GOOD THING. It means the honey you bought is raw and of the finest quality. Processed honey takes forever to crystallize, because the pollen - and flavor - have been stripped out. Each jar informs our consumers about crystallization, and provides the age-old remedy: put into hot water (not boiling) and gradually let it return to its liquid state.

Honey may contain small amounts of royal jelly and pollen, which may cause allergic reactions.

We label our honey with the year of collection.
