About Malfroys Gold Wild Honey

Multi award-winning, seasonal, wild honey, unfiltered and cold spun from frames in organically managed hives located in the ancient World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains area. Malfroys Gold apiaries are located in a diverse mix of eco-regions, providing an incredible diversity of nectar and pollen sources for the bees to forage. The resulting honey has a complex, intense and ever-changing flavour profile.

No heat above ‘beehive temperature’ is applied in the extracting or bottling stage, thereby retaining all the most nutritious materials and elements. Wild honey is produced in an entirely natural way in a wild environment, by wild bees making their own comb in Warré hives designed to mimic a tree hollow, the perfect home for a honeybee colony.

As the conventional bee keeping industry races to catch up to the intensive efficiencies and scale of the rest of the agricultural landscape, Malfroys Gold are heading in the opposite direction, focusing in on a more balanced, nuanced, localised relationship that builds resilience and capacity and produces a really extraordinary honey that is a unique expression of the time and place.

Red Bloodwood - Limited edition (gold label)
A complex mix of floral sweetness mixed with the deeper characteristics of the abundant resin ('blood') that gives the tree its name. Red Bloodwoods flower every two to four years in the sandstone forests of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage area and this honey is a unique expression of time and place.

Mountain Meadow Polyflora (morone label)
A delicate, floral honey with a lovely creamy texture. Most Australian honey is Eucalyptus-dominant but this one comes largely from ground flora so Mountain Meadow honey is more subtle and gentle than its Wild Honey siblings, but just as delicious. When we first heard ‘Mountain Meadow’ we had visions of Tim in lederhosen skipping across a Blue Mountains meadow, warbling hits from The Sound of Music, but of course there’s a very good reason for the name of this honey. After the long drought, the high rainfall in 2020 sent ground flora off on a rampant, once-in-a-decade, flowering frenzy which the bees loved, while the trees concentrated on growing new leaves rather than flowers.

Mountain Meadow Post Brood - Limited edition (gold label)
The flavour profile of Mountain Meadow but with an extra 'spicy nuttiness' and perfume that takes it to another level. 'Aged for up to five years in the hive, honeys produced and harvested from 'post-brood' comb contain the essence of the plants' nectar, pollen and ‘kino’ resins. The dark, pollen-laden combs are crushed and strained gently at the end of the season, the liquid honey is settled and then bottled immediately into glass jars, where it sets into a smooth creamy texture.Post brood combs contain the highest amounts of bee bread (fermented pollen) and propolis, resulting in an outstandingly rich and complex flavour.'

Polyflora (green label)
Honey produced by the bees from pollen from the seasonal wildflowers in the ancient, World Heritage-listed Greater Blue Mountains wilderness area. Each jar is unique, specific to this season and there is nothing else like this in Australia.'Malfroys Gold apiaries are located in a diverse mix of eco-regions, providing an incredible diversity of nectar and pollen sources for the bees to forage. The resulting honey has a complex, intense and ever-changing flavour profile.'

Polyflora Post Brood (blue label)
Winner of 2021, 2020 and 2019 Delicious Produce Awards national gold medals. Intense, rich, creamy, warm, complex and off-the-charts delicious. Literally 10 years in the making, there is nothing else like this in Australia. 'Aged for up to five years in the hive, honeys produced and harvested from 'post-brood' comb contain the essence of the plants' nectar, pollen and ‘kino’ resins. The dark, pollen-laden combs are crushed and strained gently at the end of the season, the liquid honey is settled and then bottled immediately into glass jars, where it sets into a smooth creamy texture.Post brood combs contain the highest amounts of bee bread (fermented pollen) and propolis, resulting in an outstandingly rich and complex flavour.'

Yellow Box (yellow label)
Growing in the extreme climate of the NSW Central Tablelands at altitudes of 700 to 1,000 metres, Yellow Box trees flower every two to four years over the summer months. Yellow Box nectar is sweet, light and aromatic and, in pure form, it yields 'a delicate liquid honey with a hay yellow colour, full body, characteristic sweet floral flavour and lingering clean high notes. Yellow Box also has the lowest GI rating of any Australian honey (35)'.

Polyflora Honeycomb
Spread on toast, sprinkle over yoghurt with fresh walnuts or figs, crush over porridge and muesli, or add it to a cheese or charcuterie platter or dessert. It's delicious and super nutritious.
'The health benefits of eating honeycomb outweigh liquid honey, as all the natural elements are preserved and no heat has been applied at any stage of harvesting or processing. The wax is also virgin wax, produced entirely by the bees to store the precious nectar. In contrast, most other honeycomb producers in Australia give the bees a thick artificial 'starter' sheet of beeswax which increases yield but greatly decreases the flavour, texture and purity of the end product.'
