Visit The Tasmanian Honey Company's gift shop and enjoy free tastings, in Perth, Northern Tasmania. The Tasmanian Honey Company began in 1978 as the concept of Julian Wolfhagen, a beekeeper with a profound passion for Tasmania, its wild forests and the honey that they produce.
Today Julian employs more than a dozen staff and exports pure, beautifully packaged honey right around the world. The Tasmanian Honey Company's success has largely been built on a passion for, and a commitment to the production of wild and uncompromised leatherwood honey, which they like to think of as the distillate of the wilderness.
Julian was involved with bees as a child, however, a re-acquaintance with bees and honey via a good bottle of mead shared around the fire on a cold winter's night, planted an inspirational seed that was to grow into what is now the Tasmanian Honey Company. The business has thrived ever since.
Perth is a 17-minute drive (18 km) south of Launceston.
