Why is the product range so unique?
Our honey is produced from our Jendale old growth Melaleuca plantation in the protected region of the Bungawalbyn Valley in Northern New South Wales on the east coast of Australia.
This area is the original birthplace of the unique Melaleuca Alternifolia that spread far and wide through the Jendale property, thriving in their natural state and supporting the health of bees and the incredible honey they produce.
Meluka honey is proud to produce 100% organic, raw and unfiltered honey for you to enjoy.
Why is Meluka honey sold at a higher price point than regular honey?
Our Meluka honey is raw, organic and produced from bees harvesting from a wetland where the Melaleuca's have been growing for over 30,000 years. This old growth plantation is not a regular farmed plantation, the Melaleuca's are in their natural state with Mother trees that are over 1000 years old. Due to this fact there is limited supply for honey produced from this ‘single origin’ property. We don't move our hives to other locations or blend the honey, which means our costs to produce our honey are much higher than regular commercial operations

Why can’t honey be brought into Western Australia?
All honey that is imported into Western Australia must be pasteurised or heated and be inspected by AQIS before entry. This process of pasteurisation or heat treatment destroys some of the beneficial medicinal properties of Meluka’s organic range of products.
