Our Beekeepers

We proudly source our honey from our network of over 600 beekeeping families across Australia (including some who have supplied us honey for over 40 years!). We're passionate about the relationships we have with our beekeepers and only work with Australia’s best beekeeping families, who follow our strict quality standards for the extraction of their pure, delicious Australian honey.

Here are just a few of them...

The Hampels

We're proud to introduce the Hampels, a hardworking farming family of seven from Ebenezer in South Australia. Stephen is a first generation beekeeper and has been beekeeping ever since he was a kid, starting with just 10 hives. The family also run cattle, sheep and crops alongside their very successful beekeeping business.

The Dyers 

Meet the Dyers, a hardworking beekeeping family from Williamstown in South Australia. Craig and Dianne are overjoyed that their eldest son, Joshua, will be carrying on the family tradition of beekeeping after he finishes High school. We're very proud to pack our products with honey that's been supplied by over 600 Aussie beekeeping families, including the Dyers.

The Hoopers

The Hoopers are another of our South Australian suppliers who run their beekeeping operation out of Tintinara, two hours East of Adelaide.

Robert has loyally supplied to Capilano Honey for close to 20 years. His son, Ben, has also taken to the trade, following in his father's footsteps. Ben also is notably the president of the South Australian Apiarist Association - SAAA. 

The Zadows

We’re buzzed to introduce two of the Zadow brothers and their families who are located in Tintinara - a rural town that's two hours East of Adelaide in South Australia. Ross and Lesley operate their beekeeping business alongside raising their gorgeous children, Eva and Oscar. Eva loves helping her dad with his hives. 

Just like his brother Ross, Ian runs a beekeeping business with his wife, Mel, in addition to being busy parents to their adorable son, Joel. Like many of our beekeepers, Ian is very involved in the industry and has been an executive member of the Australian Honey Bee Industry Council (AHBIC).
