Rooftop Honey Jar / 280g
Out of Stock
Honey made by Melbourne bees - with a little help from some human pals!
The team at Melbourne City Rooftop Honey tend beehives positioned on rooftops in central Melbourne, as well as in private backyards in our inner city and city fringe neighbourhoods.
Urban beekeeping has had a renaissance over the last decade, and across the world bees in Paris, New York, Istanbul, Berlin, Tokyo and Melbourne are helping to maintain the health and biodiversity of the flora and fauna of all manner of urban areas. Planting bee-friendly gardens or balcony-boxes to provide forage for pollen-gathering bees is just one way to support this lovely initiative, and purchasing a jar of Melbourne City Rooftop Honey is another!
Bees travel up to four kilometres when they collect pollen, and each hive produces different tasting honey that also varies from season to season. You really can taste the difference between kinds of honey from Sth Yarra the city and north of the river!**
Ingredients: 100 percent unblended honey, made by bees foraging within the distinct neighbourhoods of central and suburban Melbourne.
