Our story started in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne in 2007, when Matthew purchased his first beehive. It didn't take long before his obsession with bees became more than just a hobby. Quickly outgrowing his own yard and placing beehives in the backyards, and on rooftops of friends and neighbors.

During swarm season, Matthew would attend calls referred from the Brimbank City Council and local pest controllers to rescue swarms of bees. Safely removing nuisance bees alive and relocating them into his own hives.

It has been Matthew’s lifelong dream to move to the country and keep bees away from the constraints of suburbia. In December of 2018, we moved to Argyle Victoria to complete this dream and start a family with the arrival of our first son in February 2019.

We’ve been working hard to start our new apiary on our property in Argyle Victoria; Relocating our beehives from Melbourne and building more hives to keep up with demand. We have now turned hobby beekeeping into a full-time business. Specialising Raw Honey, Honeycomb and Creamed Honey. We also use Beeswax to create a variety of handmade natural Beeswax products, such as Candles, Skin Care Creams, Lip Balm and other Bee products.

Our Honey is cold extracted and kept raw, unfiltered, and unpasteurised. Leaving our honey as natural as the bees intended.

Our products are hand made from honey and wax, that we’ve collected from our own hives. All of the essential oils, butters and carrier oils used in our skin care range are locally sourced. Creating a pure, locally produced, hand-made product.

We are excited to announce that Victoria is steering the business in an extra direction. Suffering from chronic headaches/Migraines, she has been busy developing products for use for muscles and aches.


However to make things harder, Victoria has never been able to wear store bought Make Up without ending up with a worse headache. So.... Whats better then Natural Makeup? No chemicals, no hidden extras. Developed by Victoria for her use.

Any product made by Victoria, is used by her. If she isn't happy with something, you will never see it on our table for sale. She does special requests for people, but unless she specifically uses a product or Matthew does, the products never make it to our markets or on our website.

Victoria wants to ensure that only the best ends up for sale and that our customers are happy with their product.
