Honey made by Melbourne bees - with a little help from some human pals!
Rooftop Honey tends beehives positioned on top of 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 Rooftop Honey is another!
Bees travel up to four kilometres when they collect pollen, and each hive produces a different tasting honey that also varies from season to season. You really can taste the difference between honeys from St Kilda, the city and north of the river!
Ingredients: 100 percent un-blended honey, made by bees foraging within distinct neighbourhoods across Melbourne.
Postcodes are supplied to us depending on availability of honey at the time.
