Barnes Naturals Organic Honey 500g
Organic Australian Honey
Barnes Naturals pure and natural 100% Australian Organic Honey is sourced from carefully chosen native Eucalyptus forests. We source our honey from select Australian beekeepers who have to meet strict criteria and certification to provide organic honey.
How can honey be Organic?
Having a Certified Australian Organic honey means that certain beekeepers have invested and elected to be part of the certification program, which has auditors verify sites as ‘officially organic’ against a set of tight guidelines. Maintaining Australian Organic Certification is a time consuming and skilled art for bee keepers.
Organic beekeeping is very difficult and takes great skill on the part of the beekeeper to maintain hive strength with only organic measures to protect the colony against natural predators and sickness. The native flora the honey is extracted from, right down to the diet of the bees themselves needs to be balanced and certified organic. To be officially certified, hives must be made from organic materials and only exposed to organic environments and beekeeping techniques in the preparation of the honey. Sites have to be regularly audited to meet a rigorous checklist of requirements to reach certification, including not being within a 5km radius of all normal farms and agricultural land that don’t use organic methods.
Every batch of Barnes Naturals Organic Australian Honey is tested ensuring it is free of all environmental pollutants. Our stringent processes with Organic Certification guarantee you origin, authenticity and pure Australian Organic quality.
