Local honey producers and stockists
Australia’s whole honey industry is under threat from imported honey.
Imported honey could carry viruses such as foul-brood and may be toxic due to pollution. Some beekeepers feed there bees corn syrup or sugar. Bees store this the same way as they do honey and its harvested. Laws on antibiotic use don’t exist and they may be present in the honey. The solution is for Australians to support local beekeepers and buy local.
We have been able to create this community honey map which connects consumers to beekeepers.
We suggest consumers purchase local raw honey direct from beekeepers.
The solution to the global bee crisis is beautiful. According to the United Nations Small Scale localised farming can feed the world. Growing food small scale means we can grow food without poisons. If honeybees can thrive so will the human race. Bees teach us we can all win if we cooperate.
What started of as a concept is now spreading around the world. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be added to the #honeymap it is free. All you need to send is the name of the honey, address where the honey is sold, phone number and website. (#instagram)
The honeymap has been viewed more 600,000 times. You can find it at www.beethecure.com.au Honey is a sacred and should be treated as such. Selling directly enables the beekeeper to sell at retail prices. Hopefully this adds security for the beekeeper and enables the local community to experience local raw honey.
