Bulk Raw Honey Orders


We've been getting plenty of requests for bulk honey, so lets go!


The quantities come in either 10,15 or 20 kilo tubs that you can use and store or split into jars etc. We don't recommend putting a tap on your bucket as our honey is raw and will thicken and candy.
Honey never goes out of date! If you can pick up from the Sydney or Central Coast region then you are welcome to purchase. Prices haven't dropped as we'd hoped :( but on the up side they're still HEAPS cheaper than anywhere else!

I do ensure each batch/type of honey is tasted to make sure it's up to scratch. I do ask you your preference JUST IN CASE we get a choice but it's not always an option.

Message me or email at co.opstopaustralia@gmail.com and include whether your favourite is
light and mild, busy and floral or strong and hits the back of your throat. :)

(Always read the conditions of membership on our blog before ordering. There will be no assistance in lifting your honey tubs, you must bring muscles with you!).

Community Healthy Eating Initiative

Our new healthy eating community initiative is.. Free Range Eggs!

UPDATE
After a huge amount of research into the egg industry, foods and living conditions for chickens, quantities and types of omega 3 fats in eggs...
I`m horrified and sad to tell you that ALL supermarket eggs are inflammatory foods, high in omega 6 and no longer fed a nutritious diet, but cheap meat meal - making eggs extremely cheap... and nasty. Which is a complete unknown to consumers, even the dietary requirements released recommend "eggs" but there's a huge difference between them.

The GOOD NEWS is, there is one conventional brand, ECO EGGS that does offer happy, really free range and full of GOOD FATS (Omega 3s specifically DHA&DPA as well as ALA and EPA)

All Organic eggs will also have this ideal balance, treatment and density (or more).

Contact me for more info about supplying your co-op, school or community group with regular, HEART AND BRAIN HEALTHY eggs (organic or conv. from Eco Eggs)


(Disclaimer: Pace Omega 3 eggs do technically have more omega 3, but ONLY ALA which would need to be consumed in enormous amounts to equate/convert into the more useful DHA and EPA. Though it can never really convert for hearth health. 

Manning Valley also have the same as Pace above, though I have more confidence in their stocking density claims than I would for Pace (who are always in trouble for something).




Not these: which are 15:1 omega 6:3.. tut tut.



Updates:

Well our co-ops are going gang busters and it's really great to see more growth in the existing areas!

Berowra co-op has been doing extremely well and already has branched out into WGAC charity loo paper and free range eggs - as well as our usual suppliers of health food and raw honey.

We still have some interest in the Southern Highlands so please let me know if you would like to join in with Janine down there to start up a new branch.

Caress by Nature orders have been gaining popularity. Every order is an absolute treat knowing that every delicious essential oil scent, every goat milk soap, skin cream, serum, and lotions are 100% no junk, pure, hand made deliciousness for our bodies.

Thank you Lee for being our very own Costmetic Scientist - we are really spoilt!
