Australian Honey Products

Lindsay Bourke started his one-man apiarist business with 200 hives in 1966.
In 2002 Australian Honey Products became an award-winning venture exporting to countries such as Korea, Japan, Tahiti, Germany, Jordan and United Kingdom. Initially marketed under the Bourkes Garden Honey and Cradle Mountain Honey, the company expanded with the acquisition of Taverners Products in 2007. This enabled the company to diversify by adding honey beverages, honey ales and honey meads to the product list. In 2008 Lindsay purchased the oldest apiary in Tasmania, the Sheffield Honey Farm, formerly H L Jones & Sons, Barrington Apiary which was established in 1898.
Australian Honey Products now has the largest number of bee hives in Tasmania and is the largest commercial pollinator in Tasmania providing a service to all forms of agriculture statewide.
