About House of Honey

The House of Honey proudly specialises in pure, unpasteurised and unadulterated varietal types of honey. Located in the picturesque Swan Valley region, they practise harvesting honey only when their bees have allowed the honey to fully ripen. Their retail shop offers a large range of honey items and their on-site café, The Sticky Spoon Café, serves a delicious range of natural food and beverages. Their guarantee to their customers is that they will provide premium top quality West Australian honey. They actively educate consumers on bees through various mediums such as Honey Festivals, brand boards and student educational activities.
