Island Beehive

Honey as it should be – pure, raw, untreated.

Island Beehive is a family owned and operated business, which was established as an organic honey producer in 2001. The Davis family have been beekeepers for three generations, producing Ligurian Bee Honey since the mid 1900’s.  

As one of the first organic honey producers in Australia, Peter Davis is a leading voice in the honey industry. Island Beehive was established as a way for Peter to share his knowledge of beekeeping, promote the protection of the Ligurian Bee on Kangaroo Island and provide a way for the community to learn and experience the heritage of these special bees.  

With an extraction plant and packing facility built to export standards, Island Beehive produces up to 90 tonnes of honey each year. The hives are managed organically by moving them around Kangaroo Island to different native flora as the seasons change. This produces unique varieties of honey such as Cup Gum, Sugar Gum, Remota and our special Coastal Flora.   

In 2022 we introduced our new honey label, as the Kangaroo Island Ligurian Bee Co, which celebrates the heritage of the Ligurian Bee and the uniqueness of the honey produced on Kangaroo Island.
