Little Bee Honey

Established in the 1960's, Highveld Honey Farms has grown into one of the largest  honey producers in South Africa. We run approximately 8000 bee-hives in the summer rainfall area, moving the hives to different flowering crops as needed.

Our house brand honey goes by the name of Little Bee Honey which is widely sold throughout Southern Africa.

NB: Honey varies greatly in colour, flavour and consistancy. It all depends on the blossoms from which the bees have gathered their nectar.

Honey crystallisation:
This is a natural process and does not affect the qulaity of honey.

If crystals appear... stand the honey in a container of hot water and allow to warm slowly.

Honey's shelf life:
If properly stored - FOREVER.


A word about Irradiation:

We source only the best honey from different countries in the world depending on the seasons' crops, to suppliment our South African honey. Imported honey is irradiated to ensure that bee-diseases are not imported into South Africa. In terms of South African legislation, all imported honey needs to be irradiated before clearing customs. Our South African honey is not irradiated.

Irradiation Facts:
  • Irradiated honey is bacteria free
  • Irradiated honey is safe to feed infants
  • Irradiated honey is free from Clostridium and Listeriosis
  • Irradiation activates enzymes making it more healthy, with better antiseptic properties for burns and wounds.
