Broger's End Kangaroo Valley

With over 20,000 different species of bees around the world and 1,500 native bee species in Australia, the honey bee is with out a doubt the most famous!

Broger’s End is home to a few hives where in exchange for safe haven and plenty of pollen from our flower packed gardens, we receive honey and beeswax (sold in our eco shop). Our raw, unscented, unadulterated and filtered straight from the hive honey is absolutely delicious, with colour and flavour depending on what flowers are in season when the bee’s are collecting their pollen. We clean and filter our beeswax and mould into 30g bars which are great for making beeswax wraps, cosmetics, leather balm, furniture polish… the list in endless!

What do bee's make in a beehive?

Honey bees use beeswax to make hexagonal cells that together, make a honeycomb. These honey combs are then filled with honey, pollen and eggs by the honey bees.

The honey made by honey bees is made from nectar collected from flowers. The honey is then stored in the honey combs and eaten when there is no flowers available.
