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. 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.
This coming Sunday, Roger will be at the Tomaree Community Market, Sportsground, Nelson Bay Road Salamander Bay just past the big roundabout.
I have temporarily removed our medical honey as a test of our latest batch has produced disappointing results and I am actively trying to resolve the issue.
We have added three "Turmerics" to our range of specialty honeys. Turmeric is well known for its anti-oxidant properties and ability to ease pain. The addition of Black Pepper helps the body metabolise the Turmeric whilst the Ginger further helps in this area but makes the honey extremely palatable. The varieties with pepper need a good stir before use as the pepper will rise to the top.
We have added Bees Wax to our line up. See Plain Honeys & Bees Wax for details.
We have now added the Manuka Honey Skin Care range of products to our catalogue of products. As the products are based around Medically Active Manuka Honey, their healing properties are unquestionable.
We have a range of speciality honeys that includes
Honey & Turmeric
Honey, Turmeric & Black Pepper
