Why buy from the rare honey company?
We are a small family business and we are the beekeepers!

We do all the honey extraction in the beautiful native forests of south Western Australia and we do all the bottling ourselves. We select only the finest and purest honeys that are renown for their high levels of ‘total activity’ or medicinal qualities. 

We bottle and seal our honeys raw and untouched, right at source and then ship direct to our Singapore office.

All our pure raw honeys come straight from our own hives; we don’t use any imported honeys from foreign countries that may be tainted (many Australian honey companies do this). 

All our honeys are independently tested for their purity and total activity. 


Should i just buy when i’m in Australia?

The honey you buy may not be real honey! (even when bought in Australia) a recent independent study in Australia revealed that in a sample of 100 global brands, almost 40% were adulterated with cheap ingredients like corn syrup, including many Australian local and boutique brands!

Unless you know who is behind the honey, then buying off the shelf in Australia is not much different to buying off the shelf elsewhere!

How long is the shelf life & will it expire ?
The naturally occurring antibacterial properties in raw honey means that it does not expire, so you can stock up and enjoy anytime!


My creamed honey has begun to split, is it spoilt?
Our honey does not spoil, however due to the warm weather here in Singapore it may begin to split. Just use a wooden spoon to whip it back up and it's good to eat. We recommend storing your creamed honey in cooler temperatures like a wine fridge around 15°c if possible.
