Depending on the season and general availability, our varieties include: Jarrah, Blackbutt, Bottlebrush, Powderbark, Marri, Wandoo and Wildflower. These flavours and quantities rely on the abundance of native flowers throughout each season, which is directly related to climatic conditions.
Bee Happy® Honey is acclaimed for its wonderful full bodied flavour, this is a result of a combination of the strategic targeted native species of flora, and the unique extraction process.Minimal heat is utilised to ensure the honey is as close to its natural state as possible.

THROUGH THE EYES OF A BEE
FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS
Bee Happy® bees begin the winter months amongst the coastal sandplain at the back of the Pinnacles in Badjingarra National Park, near Cervantes. They migrate towards Lancelin in spring to follow the wildflower honey flow, then head down to Jarrahdale and Boddington for collection from native flowering Jarrah eucalyptus trees up until January. In January and February they move back up the Darling scarp in search of Redgum flowers, and move east in March and April towards Calingiri, north of Toodyay, where they collect pollen from the Wandoo and Powderbark eucalyptus flowers.
Our range of 100% natural quality products include our delicious honey which is available in various sizes and flavour, pollen, and our beautiful 100% beeswax.

Honey’s anti-microbial quality is measured by the term “Total Activity (TA)” The higher the Total activity (TA) the more active its antimicrobial strength. The anti-bacterial activity of the honey is derived via natural enzymes in the honey. Honey with a Total Activity of 15+ can be used to treat wounds, burns and skin infections becoming increasingly effective as the TA level increases. Honey from the Western Australian Jarrah Tree (Eucalyptus marginata) has been thoroughly researched by the Department of Agriculture And Food Research Western Australia. The results show that Jarrah honey has special antimicrobial properties, measured in scientific laboratories achieving particularly high readings.
