Bev and Tony know life on the farm is pretty sweet - what a paradise to produce and create so many tasty products! Made from all natural products, each batch is hand made with heavy emphasis on seasonality.
As custodians of some of the best farming land, they consciously improve the habitat for local wildlife through initiatives such as fencing their remnant vegetation using natural wood and wire fencing to create a wonderful micro-climate and provide safe pockets for them to nest.
Trees are an incredibly important source of food for bees and other pollinators. In part due to their large size which contains thousands of flower heads giving the pollinators their important source of food in one place.
Pollinators, especially bees, require forage from early spring through to late autumn, and native trees, including eucalyptus, tea tree and other native trees provides the food to keep the bees alive to pollinate.
The advantage of planting native wild flowering trees is that the larvae of many native butterflies and moths rely on tree foliage. However, there are some late flowering non native trees, such as Cup Gum, which can provide a valuable source of autumn nectar.
Bev and Tony recognise how important it is to plant native wild flowering trees to keep their Ligurian bees full, content, and busy making honey to go into their delicious sauces & relishes. With over 5,000 trees and shrubs planted, they’ve taken land care seriously.
