Native Bee Honey (250g)
Stingless native bees are primitive species that only produce small amounts of honey and as such sugarbag honey is a rare product to be savoured because each hive only produces about 1 kg of honey per year. It is only in warm areas of Australia, such as in Queensland and northern NSW, that they can produce more honey than they need for their own survival. Harvesting honey from a nest in a cooler area could weaken or even kill the nest.
Stingless bee honey is called Sugarbag and was prized by Aboriginals who collected it from wild nests. Indigenous Australians have been harvesting food from the bush for thousands of years, and sugarbag honey from native Australian bees is a popular form of bush tucker
Stingless bees store their flavoursome honey in clusters of small resin pots near the extremities of the nest. The resin adds a wide variety of tangy flavours to the honey, such as lemon or eualyptus. It is delicious drizzled over ice cream!
