Bongi Bees honey is a black women-owned beekeeping business established in 2017 and specialising in:
• Manufacturing of honey
• Packaging of honey
• Sale of honey
Bongi- a Zulu word derived from the word “Bonga” meaning be thankful, is our own way of showing appreciation to the hard working bees for their gift of honey and giving back to the environment - ensuring the sustainability of the bee community and enabling the continuity of food security.
The Bongi Bees honey farm is situated in Rayton, Pretoria East, in the City of Tshwane, where some of our bee hives are located.
Our honey is as pure as the bees make it. It is not radiated nor is it mixed with anything. We do not heat, add water, homogenise flavour or use pressurised filters to process our honey. This is pure raw honey as nature intended it to be.
We are registered as beekeepers with the Department of Agriculture and are members of the Northern Beekeepers Association.
Honey’s sweet taste and medicinal properties
make it suitable for all people to consume. We have different varieties of honey sourced from our own hives and from other respectable beekeepers in South Africa and surrounding areas.
Our bees forage on the following flora:
Bluegum Honey or also known as Eucalyptus Honey is the most common honey in South Africa, This honey is produced when the bees visit the Eucalyptus trees, during the summer months.
The taste: This is pale or gold in colour and sweet, Never to be underestimated. A true honey made by bees pollinating orchards early in the year.
Aloe plants native to Africa provide the red-orange or yellow flowers and reddish-pink pollen for the production of aloe honey.
Lavender honey is a premium honey. Flowery, pleasant, well balanced and rounded, very fine honey aroma and the delicate floral scent with an evident Lavender component. It has a very persistent medium sweet taste that grows with the finish.
