Highland Honey is a family owned business operating in the Lake Macquarie area of NSW and encompasses Newcastle, the Hunter region and the Central Coast. We produce local honeys and also purchase honey from our son who operates in the New England Ranges of New South Wales. Our honeys are extracted and packed using traditional labour methods. Apart from the uncapping stage, we do not heat the honey in the extraction and packaging process. This ensures that our honey is 100% pure and "raw" and tastes like real honey did many years ago. It also ensures that our honey retains all of its medicinal properties.
Most of our honeys are from gum trees but unfortunately, their flowering is notoriously unreliable so whilst a variety may be available this year, it may be many years before that ariety becomes available again.
We currently have a number of different types of plain honey available varying from a very light honey through to a quite strong honey. See the individual varieties for a more detailed description of them. If you put honey in your tea or coffee or in your cooking, consider the lighter honeys as the stronger ones are just too overpowering. From time to time, we also have candied honeys. If you want to order a candied honey, order one of the other plain honeys and at the end of the checkout process, include a message that you want candied honey and how strong a honey you would like.
We have recently added Cold Pressed Macadamia Oil and Infused Cold Pressed Olive Oils to our product range. Download a copy of our brochure on Macadamia Oil to read of the benefits of this oil. Our olive oils won the Grand Champion Prize at the 2010 Sydney Royal Show and come from the Barossa Valley of South Australia.

Due to the very dry weather both here and in the west, both honey and pollen will be in extremely short supply this year. As a result, we have had to make our larger pollen sachets "temporarily unavailable" and have had to increase the prices for our honey products. We regret the rise, but have no choice as the price being paid for honey by the packers has started going through the roof. This is the first price rise for our honeys in over 5 years.
