This week we are featuring an outstanding honey by Miellerie, the Leatherwood. I first met Yves at MOMA, the summer market on the rooftop of Tasmania’s Museum of Old and New Art. His knowledge and passion for his honey is inspiring, as is the quality of the product. Yves makes truly exceptional honey that has raised the bar of this popular sweetie, to a rare and exquisite treat that reminds us of how special this product really is. You can find jars of this precious honey here, and also at our PanTree Produce stall at Marrickville’s Addison Road Organic Food Markets on Sunday.

Here are some words about Leatherwood Honey from Miellerie
The Leatherwood, a gorgeous tree growing from the cold, deep rainforest of the world heritage wilderness of South-West Tasmania.
Her yield has flowed since Gondwanaland creating nectar of a distinctive flavour full of soft aromas like the sweet dew of the cold rainforest floor. Her four-petal blossom is a ‘lotus of the air’ where bees gather her nectar during the stillness of the hot summer time.
A colour seducing,
A melting crystal,
Full body of aroma;
My mind dreams of life.
