Ngooka pure and natural bush Honey is sourced from a blend of native floral species in the south west of WA.
This area – Noongar Boodja – has some of the most unique and beautiful plant species anywhere on earth which produce delicious, high quality honey that has also been shown to be highly bioactive.
Only produced in micro-batches, all jars are carefully hand-poured, often under the watchful eye of NLE’s senior Noongar apiarist, Mal. The taste of the honey reflects the changes of the seasons, with different flavours becoming more dominant as trees and flowers come into bloom.
More about Noonglar Land Enterprises Group
Established in 2014 by Noongar landholders, the Noongar Land Enterprises Group Incorporated (NLE) is a not-for-profit, Aboriginal-led grower group in Western Australia and the first Aboriginal grower group of its kind in Australia. The NLE is focused on inspiring, educating and assisting Noongar people, in South West Australia, to advance through demonstrable business success centred around land management enterprises. While NLE are on a pathway to economic development, it is the environmental, cultural and social aspirations which provide the motivation and inspiration for our business aspirations.
Honey production is a key enterprise of the NLE with a goal to product culturally appropriate high quality, Aboriginal produced honey on Noongar boodja (country) from the Noongar Flora Species. Key benefits include training and skill development, recconnecting Noongar community with country, identifying flowering times and pollen of native species and cultural significance of species, including the Noongar names of species.
The NLE is working close with the Honey CRC based at UWA to ensure the quality of the honey produced, based on the flora species the bees feed on. This project has been kindly funded by Food Innovation Australia Ltd.
Ngooka Honey is seasonal and available in limited quantities until the next season.
