Our remarkable carrot-flower honey was created by bees pollinating carrot-seed crops across the Northern Midlands of Tasmania. This honey is the 'salted caramel' of the honey world — it is rich and toffee-like for the dedicated sweet tooth — but better for you than sugar. All our honey is raw and cold extracted, which means it retains all the natural enzymes, nutrients and antimicrobial properties honey is so famous for.

Why is pollination so important? An estimated 65 per cent of agricultural and horticultural crops introduced to Australia following European settlement (like carrots) require external sources of pollination (e.g. insects, birds, winds or bats). Some of these crops are 100 per cent reliant on insect pollinators, such as honey bees.

What does this mean to you? Let’s think about it this way — one in every three mouthfuls of food depends on pollinators like our honey bees. So...Herbert & Co honey bees are crop pollinators first and honey producers second. We only harvest our honey in small batches, when the season is bountiful and the crops our bees are pollinating are in full flower. We make sure plenty of honey is left for our bees to remain strong and healthy.

Together with Tasmanian Pollination Services, our bees pollinate carrot-seed crops across the Midlands of Tasmania to secure the seed production needed to grow carrots. Most plants in the world propagate through seeds. Our ancestors discovered that by harvesting and sowing seeds of selected species they could produce food more easily. Tasmanian growing conditions are ideally suited for carrot seed production and our local farming expertise is unsurpassed. The delicious bonus of our bees' pollinating activities is the fabulous carrot-flower honey we harvest at the end of the season.

At Herbert & Co we love everything about food — from paddock to plate. Through our honey bees we are committed to supporting ethical and sustainable food production — starting on our back doorstep in northern Tasmania. We purchased our first four bee hives in 2018 after a trip to North America, where we first became aware of the decline in the global honey bee population, which threatens our food security. The seeds of an idea were sown during our travels and Herbert & Co Honeybee Products was conceived. We are committed to building our hives and helping secure healthy crop production — for you, our bees and our planet.
