People have recorded eating raw honey for over 40 centuries and Tweed apiarist, Barry McLean, keeps this tradition alive. Barry said “the honey I sell is generally extracted from hives in the Mt Nullum area where there are iron barks, yellow stringy and a host of other suitable trees but in winter we move the hives to Hastings Point where the coastal heath and melalueca trees are flowering.”
This healthy natural treat that varies according plant source is available at the markets every week.
Barry’s raw honey has been processed at temperatures similar to the bee hive’s internal temperatures. That
means that the healthy enzymes found in honey remain intact so your body can enjoy their goodness. This is especially important for his Jelly Bush honey that has been assessed to have similar qualities to the highly popular New Zealand Manuka honey for its healing qualities.
