Pure Peninsula Honey Farm.

Pure Peninsula Honey Farm.

Over the next few months, ok at least six, I can’t promise any exciting overseas adventures but I can show you around my home state of Victoria, Australia.
Today we headed to Peninsula Honey Farm. I was after some manuka honey to help a throat infection and it’s only a 20 min drive from home.
Not only did I get my honey, but the kids and I learnt so much.
There is a portable building divided into four rooms. Pho was on hand to give us a tour and shared his passion of honey with us.
In the first room there was every product you could make from honey. There was honey and apple cider, honey icecream, honey lip balm and honey mustards. We even tried honey chocolate.
Then came the tasting room. The kids loved trying all the different honey. Peppers favourite was orange blossom while Woody liked Iron bark.
There was a room set up with a real life working hive. It was fascinating to watch the bees come and go covered in pollen and working so hard. There were little microscopes for the kids to use to get up close to the hive. Pho gave the kids all the information they needed to learn about the hive.

 

Outside there are picnic tables, a small sandpit and a swing set. We even saw rabbits hopping on the grass.

 

Where: 871 Derril Road, Moorooduc. (Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, Australia)

Open : 7 days a week 9-5.

Cost : free (except for my medicinal manuka honey which broke the bank!)

Access: There is wheelchair accessible parking. (Ground is gravel ) There is wheelchair access via a ramp into the portable building. Access within the building is rather cosy and with a powerchair it would be very tricky to get a decent turning circle into and out of each room.

Tours of the farm can be arranged by appointment.
