PODCAST EPISODE 46: John Winkles from Pure Peninsula Honey, Victoria, Australia
Like many Melbournites, I love to escape to the Mornington Peninsula when I have time to spare. I love the winding roads that meander between deep set willowy gum trees. I love the small communities hidden in the bush. I love the skies filled with the sounds of galahs and cockatoos. A day spent visiting the Peninsulas glorious beaches, wineries, and farms is a true delight. I am therefore a little jealous of our guest for episode 46 on the BEES WITH BEN beekeeping podcast – John Winkles of Pure Peninsula Honey, whose fantastic honey farm is situated in Moorooduc, amidst local delights such as the Moonlit Sanctuary, Peninsula Hot Springs, Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm and the glorious Cape Schanck National Park.
John was born in Germany and came to Australia when he was in his early twenties. A fourth-generation butcher by trade, John started his beekeeping venture as a hobby, when he found and adopted two feral hives some years ago. John nurtured them until they were healthy and happy colonies.  These days, he is one of the beekeepers with the most hives in the state!
Now running for some 30 years, Pure Peninsula Honey is renowned for its wide range of delicious honey, with something to suit every taste and need. The company offers close to 30 different honey, wax, honeycomb and cosmetic products that you can purchase; some of my favourites are their delicious Lemon Honey – perfect mixed into drinks when you have a cold or need some TLC – and the Local Flora Squeeze Bottle of honey is a must for every pantry. Pure Peninsula Honey also transports bees to pollinate fruit, vegetable and seed crops, and offers bee and wasp control services.
So, if you are heading down to the Peninsula, make sure you stop in at Pure Peninsula Honey farm, open every day of the year except Christmas Day. I would also wholeheartedly recommend John’s delicious ice-cream, not to mention his mead, that just won best mead at show at the Red Hill show! Tune in to hear John and I talk about his transition to beekeeping and life as a keeper on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
