About Us

Black Dog Honey

We are a couple that live in Nimbin, in the beautiful Northern Rivers of NSW which is Bundjalung Country. Together we have made a life based on complete off-grid, sustainable living and have put much love into our garden to keep our bees and bellies happy!

Jens is currently completing his qualification in Beekeeping and has a practical nature which has been the backbone behind this operation.

Lisa has patiently endured this (supported!) and has been Jens’ helper and does the behind scenes work. Together we work hard and have many laughs!


Why ‘Black Dog’

‘Black Dog’ honey is named after our adorable Kelpie Cross called Ben. Ben came into our lives as a rescue dog and has accompanied us on many of our adventures.

Due to Ben’s infectious nature, he has been the inspiration behind much of our work. He also helps with the extraction of our honey and supervision of the bees.


Our Girls

Our Girls are Italian Honeybees, they are calm in nature and are viable workers.

They feed on an abundance and variety of local flora.

We treat our bees with the upmost respect and care and we are rewarded with some of the best Raw Honey in Australia.
