About Us

We're three generations of the Brenton family, and we, and our team, are your Australian beekeepers. We supply our honey, beeswax and certified Australian manuka direct to customers through our website and at markets in the Port Macquarie region, and we also supply our delicious honey wholesale for shops and for export.

We look after the entire honey production process, from raising queen bees to caring for the worker bees right through to honey harvesting, bottling and labelling. We call it "from the bush to the bottle". 

Here at The Beekeeper® (and our other brands including Honey & Earth® and Bees & Us®) you’ll  get great tasting honey from us, the beekeepers who produced it.

Our honey facility on the Mid North Coast of NSW and process complies with Australia’s food safety and food hygiene requirements. We are B-QUAL accredited to the highest level and meet HACCP standards.

The honey is extracted using modern, hygienic equipment. Nothing is added to it and nothing is done to change its flavour or quality. It's honey like our great grandparents used to harvest and enjoy.

You simply receive great tasting honeys and medicinal Manuka honey as the bees gathered it, from the beekeepers who produced it.

We hope you enjoy it and thank you for supporting our company and community. We've been doing this a long time, because we love it and we're good at it.
