After moving to a farm on the Mornington Peninsula, Pure Peninsula Honeys’ apiarist John Winkels turned his hobby of many years into a full time business. John found 2 feral beehives, which he carefully monitored, tended to and eventually moved into boxes. This was the beginning of Pure Peninsula Honey.
Today, Pure Peninsula Honey transports bees to pollinate fruit, vegetable and seed crops as well as producing high quality cold extracted honey that is rich in flavour and goodness. Bee and Wasp control forms a substantial portion of the business as well, removing unwanted bees and wasp nests from domestic and commercial premises. Beeswax is produced as a by-product for many different consumer uses. Pure Peninsula Honey uses the beeswax and their honey to make honey related products such as lip balms, candles, moisturiser and soap.
